Your Photos & Stories

Together Forever

Metadata tags are the perfect digital replacement for what used to be written on the back of our photos. It's a powerful standard, but traditional tagging can be as much fun doing your taxes and not doing it means a photo can be separated from its story.

QromaTag for macOS introduces a new approach called Natural Language Tagging. Instead of worrying about what to tag and how to tag it, just describe your own photos your own way.

Natural Language Tagging

In this example, the user said "This is my mom and sister at the Eiffel Tower in the spring of 1974." QromaTag automatically created metadata tags for date, place and people.

QromaScan detects important details from the description, including dates, exact locations and even the full names of the people in the photos and automatically generates the key metadata tags. In a flash, you'll have a photo with a full description and up to 8 key metadata tags you didn't have to type in.

With the metadata now embedded inside the file, you can find any photo with just a few keystrokes, or pass along a great backstory for future generations.

Wherever the photo goes, the story goes with it.


It's Mom & Dad

To You

NLT is an amazingly simple way to create many tags from a description, but how natural would it be if you had to say the full names of your mom,dad and other relatives every time? Not very natural at all.

That's why QromaTag's Relationship Manager makes it dead simple to tag the full names of the people that mean the most to you. Simple say something like "This is my mom and dad near Hyde Park in Sydney in the summmer of 1997" and QromaTag will tag that image with the full names of both your parents. Its simple and natural.

Built for Speed

Get done faster.

Tagging photos the old way involves lots of typing and tabbing from field to field. It takes time, can be tedious, and may put you off from tagging your images. This is bad. QromaTag's time saving features help speed you through.

Autofill Names

Rounding out QromaTag's war against excessive typing is the powerful autofill feature. Import your contacts in a click, then autofill people names just by typing in a few letters.


Effortless Geotagging

Set exact locations with a click.

You might know where a photos was taken, but will anyone else? With digital images, it's possible to store exact location, right down to the precise GPS coordinates, with geotagging. You can use it to pin photos to your childhood home, where you went to school, or anywhere else that means something to you.

Geotagging, however, hasn't traditionally been user friendly. QromaTag makes it simple with a powerful Custom Places panel that helps you locate and store exact locations. Then with a single click 6 important pieces of precise location data, including address location, city and state, will be embedded into your photos, and forever end the age old question Where was that photo taken?

  • Easy Contacts Import

    Flip a switch and import your contact list for use with tagging. Then, tag people in images just by saying that person's name during your voice recognition description.

  • Quick View Enabled

    Sometimes thumbnails don't give you the full picture. Just like the Finder, tap the space bar to see any image full screen.

  • Fuzzy Logic

    Don't know exactly when a photo was taken? QromaTag uses fuzzy logic allowing you to tag a photo with just the year, month and year, or even a season and year.

  • Multi Format Support

    QromaTag can apply metadata to JPEG, PNG, TIFF and DNG (digital negative) files.

  • Safety First

    QromaTag can backup up your original file prior to writing metadata. It's very rare, but if the power goes out right when a file is being written, we have it covered!

  • FileName Organization

    Use an option to replace gibberishy alphanumberic filenames with a sensible date based format.


... or ask your own.

What kind of metadata does QromaTag write, and to what image formats?

QromaTag writes industry standard IPTC and EXIF metadata to JPEG, TIFF, PNG and DNG files.

Do I have to use voice recognition? My voice does not get recognized well…

No, you can enter text by typing in any field. You can also try voice recognition and then edit the recognized text before the Natural Language Tagger tries to parse your description.

Can I direct enter metadata for date, location and people? Some of my images already have some metadata I want to preserve

Yes, you can use the Inspector to directly enter metadata, and take advantage QromaTag's time saving features.

Is there a Windows version?

At this time no, but we are looking into it.
