This free, AI-powered Lightroom plug-in will automatically tag your photos with keywords
Powered by artificial intelligence, Imagga's Wordroom is a plug-in for Adobe Lightroom that 'sees' images and recommends a list of up to 30 keywords based on attributes including objects, colors, shapes, emotions, timeframes, and events. With one click, keywords can be added to an image's metadata so that it's easily searchable. It was created for professional and hobbyist photographers who don't want to spend long hours assigning individual keywords to hundreds of thousands of images.
Wordroom relies on machine learning algorithms that get smarter as more people use them. This means the more images it sees, the better it gets at accurately identifying keywords. Users can remove any keyword that doesn't make sense for a specific image and manually add in as many as they wish. Once the 'Add to keyword tags’ button is clicked, both automatic and manually entries will be displayed in Lightroom’s Keyword tags panel. Each photo with keywords will have a tag on its thumbnail.
To install Wordroom, select 'Plugin Manager' from Lightroom's dropdown menu 'File.' Add the plug-in file stored on your computer, enable it, and click 'Done.' Next, select the dropdown menu 'Library' and click on 'Plug-in Extras' > 'Auto-keyword.' It will automatically display suggested keywords for the currently selected photo. Photos are analyzed in the cloud as small thumbnails, so users will need to be connected to the Internet when using it, but Wordroom claims images are not permanently stored.
You can use the plug-in without registering for the first 100 photos. After that, you'll need to sign up for a free plan. Wordroom will remain free to use if you auto-tag 2,000 or fewer images per month. Any more than that will require a higher-tier plan that allows for up to 12,000 images per month at $14. To get started, all Imagga asks for is an email address so it can send you a download link.
