Where can I find Bulk Categorization?

Our focus is to ensure that your core WordPress Media Library Management plugin remains stable and just works. Whilst other plugins offer these features for free,
the user experience isn’t great – and some users simply don’t need these features.

Bulk Categorization, Auto Categorization, Shortcodes, Folder, EXIF/IPTC and more will be made available through individual paid-for Addons for Media Library Organizer
at a later date.
