How to perform AI automatic image redaction in album


The Al Automatic feature integrated with the Album within CaseGuard Studio is one step further into advancing your Image Redaction Process! While AI detection is a stand-alone feature within CaseGuard, using it within the Album will speed up your redaction process when redacting a large number of images!

The AI eliminates manual work done by the user, and the Album eliminates the need to run AI on each individual image. By adding all images into one Album, you can apply redactions on any of the nine objects supported by the software. Faces/heads, License plates, Screens, and signatures are particularly popular for redaction by AI users in CaseGuard.

For users tasked with redacting Personal Identifiable Information (PII) within hundreds of images, combining the Album with the AI detection would be most valuable. A task that would take a user hours to complete is now accomplished in just seconds!
