Uses the AI based web service https://imagga.com/ to enrich the photo metadata based on the image content and extends the PicApport database with additional search fields (see example in the 3rd screenshot below).
|Name of the addon||Imagga - Automatic tagging of photos|
|Type||Procedure and database extension|
Get additional meta data of the selected photos, which will be stored directly in the jpg file. It is important that no existing metadata (independent of the add-on) is changed or deleted (the different input parameters described below only refer to the data fields of the respective add-on). The newly acquired information is stored in a separate namespace in JSON format in the XMP segment of the photo metadata.
During indexing, PicApport uses this data to generate additional search fields.
Please note that the image information is transferred to Imagga.com. The add-on transfers the scaled jpg file without metadata to Imagga.com.
