How to Navigate Image Redaction Tools & its Properties


CaseGuard offers a wide range of Image Tools designed to meet the needs of users who want to modify, redact, and enhance their images. The three primary tools in CaseGuard are Video, Edit, and Transform.

Similar to the Video Redaction Tools, CaseGuard allows Manual and Automatic Redactions on all images. Users have the option to select a shape, enhancement effect(s), and Redaction Reason for any object(s) present in their images. Additionally, all images that have text can also be redacted instantly using the Text Detection feature- without the use of any AI.

Using the Merge within the Edit Tool will merge images into an mp4 video file resulting in reducing manual work for users interested in redacting or editing more than one image at a time. The Transform Tool, on the other hand, is helpful when rotating images for better visualization. Users looking to read or edit images upside down or from an odd angle have the ability to do so with these tools!
