Have you ever come in from the field with hundreds (or thousands) of dolphin fins that need to be processed for your catalogue? The next time-consuming step typically involves cropping the fins from each photograph and saving each cropped image into your catalogue. Photo-id Ninja (originally titled ‘Findr’) has been designed to automate this step—it uses deep learning to automatically extract the fins from the original image and returns the cropped image.
It could not be simpler—drag your image(s) into Photo-id Ninja, and a zip file will be returned containing the cropped images!

Soon Photo-id Ninja will not just detect and crop the fins from images, but also help you to identify unique individuals in a set of images. You will be able to upload all photographs from a day in the field and cropped fins will be grouped by unique individual, making comparison to your catalogue much more time efficient.
