Cropped, Rectified and De-skewed Photos from scan.

Extract Multiple Images from Scans or Photos of Multiple Prints

Place as many photos on your flatbed scanner as you can fit and scan, or photograph them with your mobile or digital camera. Caption Pro will automatically detect individual photos from the input image. Photos will be straightened and can be rotated, flipped, colourised, or tonally adjusted before saving into separate image files, to which two-part, editable captions can be added Face recognition can label people appearing in the image.

Create Digital Facsimiles of Documents

Caption Pro’s manual definition of crop regions allows you to create digital facsimiles of documents such as diaries by photographing pages, defining regions containing text, saving these regions as images, and then adding all the images to a single PDF file where each file page contains the text from each original document page.

Face Recognition

Let Face Recognition Identify Your Forebears

Caption Pro’s powerful Premium face recognition can detect faces in a photo and then find and label the same faces in other photos so that anyone looking at the photo will know the names of the people in it .

Caption Photos with ease

Caption Pro can add captions created by typing or speaking to images and videos below the original content, thus keeping all your pixels unchanged. Images with captions in the pixels can be viewed in any application on any platform or in hard copy. Caption Pro also lets you present a selection of captioned images and videos as a slideshow. You have control over the display of each slide, rather than creating a video of all of the content. Captioning Photos is fun with Caption Pro. You can view the manual here.

Editing and Sizing Photo Captions

Text captions can be edited after application. If any detail of the caption needs amending, the entire caption does not need to be re-applied. The size of captions is automatically adjusted to fit them into the specified space. No more wondering what font size to use.

Two-Part Photo Captions

Two-part captions give flexibility and captions can be obtained automatically from a number of sources, such as Photo Gallery, Picasa, and Windows Photos. More details here.

Add CaPtions from Existing metadata

You may have already added date, location, or subject metadata to your photos with Picasa, Photo Gallery, Photos, or native Windows. Caption Pro can turn this metadata from many different sources into visible captions automatically, allowing you to easily process multiple photos.

Use Another Image as a Sub-Caption FOR YOUR PHOTO

A sub-caption can be an image or part of one. This is ideal for artwork photographs where the artwork and its description may be a separate image as shown above. The back of an old family photo may be included in the image.

Change Aspect Ratio of PHOTOS

Caption Pro can also adjust the aspect ratio of images so that they can be seen in their entirety even when the platform or hard copy constrains the aspect ratio of the image.

Caption PHOTOS IN ANY Language

Captioning can be in any language supported by Windows, including Asian languages.

What’s wrong with Adding CAPTIONs to PHOTOS ON SOCIAL MEDIA?

A picture may be worth a thousand words but a few words about a picture can add greatly to its impact. Social media recognise this. They all provide captioning and comment facilities  for uploaded images. Face recognition can identify people in a photo once you’ve flagged an example. But problems arise if you want to move images out of their social media setting. You can download the picture, but you can seldom  download any associated text.

Do you really want to write YOUR CAPTION over your Photo?

Phone and tablet vendors recognise the importance of adding text to photos, and all provide some native capability in their products. However, they all write on top of the photos. This may be fine for some images, but not for all of them, particularly scanned family photos. In the pre-digital area, annotations were commonly underneath a photo in an album, or on the back of individual prints. They weren’t written on the photos.

Why Meaningful File and Folder Names Aren’t Enough

If you use a personal computer you may have included information about pictures in file or folder names, or even in metadata. Many institutions advise this as a way of preserving information about a digital picture, but if you move the pictures to a tablet or phone, this information is not easily accessible – all you see are the pixels. Captions added with Caption Pro are visible on any platform – they are part of the image.

Swiping Through CAPTIONED Image and Video collections

Mobile phones have always had a seamless way of presenting images and videos so that you can step through them by swiping. Now you can do the same thing on a Windows desktop or tablet with Caption Pro. You can add fully controllable captions to each item without writing on top of anything. Caption Pro is a great way to share a selection of your travel or family photos and videos with your friends.

I am a keen photographer, both on holidays and around town. I have found Caption Pro a great tool for keeping precious notes with each photo.  For my holiday photos, they make a ready holiday diary. At the same time, being able to select individual captioned photos allows me to easily create a personalised collection to copy or email to family and friends.

I have also used Caption Pro to add captions to family history photos, and value the feature that the caption does not overwrite the photo and that it can be easily edited.
