What is ByteDetective?
ByteDetective is a desktop app (currently available for MacOS) that acts as a semantic search engine for your photos. The aim is to make searching for images on your desktop quick and easy.
Images are difficult to search; they often don't have a really intuitive filename, and you have to dig a lot to find them. Wouldn't it make more sense to search for them based on their content (e.g "eating pizza with friends")?
Why it's cool:
📁Ease of use: Say goodbye to the endless struggle of navigating through countless files and folders to find that one picture
🔮Intelligent: Even if your description is vague, ByteDetective will deliver pretty decent results, giving you images that match your words.
⚡Fast: Lightning-fast performance as the inference is made with Rust.
How it works
How to use
- Download the release.
- Open it.
- Give the app authorizations to access your files.
- Leave it open for a few hours. At first, it will take a little time to scan all the images on your computer. Then it will get faster and synchronize with new images on the fly, promise.
