Smart Image Processing Platform

Backgrounds

Our client is a large photo services business focused on professional photo printing (books, albums, commercials, catalogs, portrait programs), photo merchandise, software tools for photo professionals and production services for professional studios and photographers. Pre-production routines involve massive manual work to review, select, adjust and prepare images.

Challenge

Develop a batch image processing platform, that removes/minimizes manual image processing, and enables a faster,more  accurate and cost-efficient flow. Example: recognize persons on an image, identify images that match criteria and calculate cropping patterns to fit specific template to be used in further production.

Solution

We developed a service-oriented backend on the MS Azure stack that successfully solves the task. Intellectual image processing leverages Azure Cognitive Services. The platform provide dramatic cost savings and 40X faster flow against the legacy approach that required human input to review and adjust each image one by one using conventional software.
