Tropy is a free and open-source desktop knowledge organization application to manage and describe photographs of research materials developed by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. Photos imported into Tropy can be combined into single items, described with metadata or apply metadata in bulk[5], create custom metadata templates[6], write notes for individual photographs, and tag photos for organization.

Features[edit | edit source]

Tropy does not seek to be photo editing software, a citation manager, a writing platform, or an online exhibit platform. Tropy seeks to address the challenges of the now-common experience of researchers photographing objects in archives[7]. Tropy allows users to group a collection of photos into a single document, apply multiple tags to photos to allow for organization, and provide annotations and notes to individual items and groups of items. Material in Tropy can also be exported to JSON-LD[8] and Omeka[9] to allow collaboration with others.

Items are organized through a drag-and-drop interface, and can search the users' collections.

Currently, the platform accepts JPEG, PNG, or SVG file formats. Tropy currently does not support PDF, TIFF, or other file formats.[10]

Financial support[edit | edit source]

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation funded Tropy's development.[11] Tropy's public released happened in October 2017.[12]
