Canon U.S.A. Launches RAISE, Its First Online Photo Community
New AI-Integrated Platform Can Help Photographers Advance Their Craft, Save Time with an Improved Workflow as well as Easily Organize and Share Their Photos
MELVILLE, N.Y., Feb. 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2017, approximately 1.2 trillion photos were taken; turning millions of people into prolific photographers1, who are spending a tremendous amount of time arranging and searching through their library of photos. To help photographers streamline their workflow and continually improve their craft, Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the company's first online photo-community platform – RAISE. This new platform utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to help photographers organize and categorize their photos through auto-tagging.
Features and benefits of RAISE include:
An Adobe Lightroom plugin version of RAISE, which is compatible with Adobe Lightroom Classic CC, is currently scheduled to be released next month. This will further enhance the usability of the RAISE features such as auto-tagging images within a user's Lightroom library through RAISE collections in the platform.
"Creativity is born from community – from collaboration with like-minded individuals," said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. "With RAISE, we are building that community for photographers. Through this new platform, photographers from all different professional backgrounds and skill sets can come together to share their talents and connect with others in the community. Simply put, we hope RAISE will inspire the next generation of photographers to RAISE the bar and propel their creativity to new heights."
The new platform along with Canon's latest solutions will be showcased at this year's Wedding Portrait & Photography Show (WPPI) in Las Vegas from February 27 - March 1 in the Canon booth #121.
