How to create an album for image redaction


Redacting a large number of images can be a daunting and time-consuming task, but with CaseGuard Studio’s Album feature, you can simplify your workflow and save valuable time. Instead of manually adding and redacting each image individually in CaseGuard, you can add all of your images in one Album and apply redactions with just a few clicks.

This feature is catered towards users with the need to redact personally identifiable Information from a set of images, such as 10,000 images with faces/heads, license plates, screens, and more- all managed within a single album!

After applying all redactions, either manually or automatically, you can export the album. The exported file appears as a slideshow in the Project Files Panel. Additionally, you can locate images as individual files on your computer within the “Redacted Album” folder in your projects directory. This added convenience ensures a quick review and post-redaction process for the user.
