What Pitara is NOT

What Pitara is NOT?

  1. Pitara does not upload your photos anywhere on the cloud
  2. Pitara is not a photo editor, it doesn’t modify your photos (Except when you add custom TAGs, it inserts TAGs to photo headers only)
  3. Pitara does not move around your photos
  4. It’s not a photo organizer. In fact, Pitara removes the need to organize photos


Search naturally like Google

Use one or more combinations of keywords like – Place, date, time, seasons, folders, or camera models.

A few search examples –

  • 2020 Summer Weekend Display photos clicked during the Summer weekends of 2020.
  • Christmas Hawaii  – Photos clicked on Christmas in Hawaii. 
  • January night weekend 9pm – Narrow down to an hour around 9 pm. (maybe a date night photo)
  • iPhone 3GS Anaheim – An older version of the phone you had, from the Disney (Anaheim, LA) trip.
  • Nikon D7100 – Taken using your Nikon D7100 camera.
  • Cute long hair – Search using your own custom TAG that you added.

The possibilities are endless. Check out all the commonly allowed keywords. And a long list of sample queries here.
