Lightroom: Auto keywording similar to google photos and apple photos

After much deliberation I chose Lightroom to be my primary photo management software over Google Photos and Apple Photos because among other things I am a photographer / videographer and love that it's keywords are ITCP level metadata (instead of some proprietary system).

But one thing I really fell in love with when testing google / apple photos was their auto keywording features.  Being able to have all "cars" "landscapes" "animals" etc automatically keyworded makes searching and adding my own keywords exponentially faster.

I found this cool plugin http://wordroom.org/ but it only keywords 1 photo at a time when you manually tell it to.

I know lightroom is in a bit of a different ballgame than google / apple photos but I'm guessing there are a lot more people like me who use Lightroom over those options but would love to see stay competitive in the auto-keywording area as well.

Thanks!

This currently works for images synced to the Lightroom web. You can search on lightroom.adobe.com and see keyword results based on image contents.

You might check out the Cloud Tagger plugin. It uses Google's Cloud Vision service to tag photos. I haven't seen anyone post details about how well it works.

If you purchased the CC license you can use Lightroom web to search on image content without manualy tagging them first.

There's a significant disadvantages to that approach: LR Web/Mobile doesn't have any of the important metadata that's in the desktop catalog, so you can't search using both image content and metadata in the desktop catalog (e.g. GPS location, time, existing caption or keywords, rating, etc.).

My suggestion would be that Adobe merged both techniques in Lightroom and Lightroom Web :)

I agree with that suggestion -- that would be much more useful to LR desktop users.

I've just released the Any Vision plugin, which also uses Google Cloud Vision to automatically tag your photos with labels, landmarks, logos, face expressions, and dominant colors and extract embedded text (OCR).

In addition to Any Vision, there are three other products with significantly different feature sets and pricing: Cloud Tagger, Excire, and Lightroom Web search.
