All IMatch users are encouraged to upgrade to IMatch 2020 as soon as possible. It not only has awesome new features but also contains critical bug fixes, security enhancements and up-to-date versions of important 3rd party components.
IMatch 2020 introduces the IMatch AI for face detection and recognition. Surrounding this new technology are features like the People View, the People Filter, new File Window attributes to display person data, matching variables and person-based sort profiles.

The new IMatch Events concept allows you to organize files based on events like ‘Paul’s Birthday’ or ‘City Trip to London’ in a very intuitive and visual way. There is an Event Filter and you can sort files based on events, too.

The TimeWiz app makes correcting, shifting, setting and manipulating date and time information in your images super easy.

The handy IMatch Clipboard helps with typical reorganization tasks like moving files around, combining files from multiple sources, dealing with duplicates, merging files from different folders or categories and more.

The ‘Did You Know?’ app offers free advice, tips & tricks on all features and options in IMatch. A great help for casual users or users who don’t read the IMatch help end-to-end ?

The IMatch Notepad allows you to keep notes where you can see them. Use it to remember frequently used variables. Workflow tips. Instructions. Keep notes on specific settings and options you prefer.

With the new Metadata Analyst you can quickly check files for potential metadata problems. This tool also helps us to help you, when you contact support or request help in the user community.

For this upgrade we did a lot of work on the core technologies of IMatch, to make it even more reliable and faster. These optimizations result in faster processing of categories and collections to reduce lag when working with features like the File Window, keywords, filters and data-driven categories. Background operations have been optimized and startup time reduced.

We’ve upgraded all relevant 3rd party components used in IMatch to their latest versions in order to improve compatibility and stability.
