We are happy to introduce our new service, Everypixel Patterns, a simple, modern, and efficient tool for making seamless patterns for designers.

Things can get tough when it comes to creating an original pattern. It is not always obvious which way to go since pattern variations seem endless. A little more space here, a little less rotation there, and you have got something completely different. Let alone that you have to control the overall aesthetic style of the final design. Thus, an obviously simple task may turn into an avalanche of hard decisions. …

Everypixel Group launched the new API called Age Recognition. It’s created for those who work with the photo. We’re certainly sure that every photographer, which has ever dealt with photo stock sites, is extremely annoyed to attribute his or her content. A thousand photographers spend an enormous amount of time to describe their photo and to find the most correct keywords.

We’ve already learned our neural networks to estimate the attractiveness of Instagram bloggers’ or professionals’ photos and to generate keywords for a photo. Now we want more: let AI predict the age of people on images!

Who can use it?

It can be…

Now we are going to tell you how it will make your services more efficient.

Only in the recent 24 hours, people have uploaded more than 5 billion images to the social media. Obviously, it is not the end: the pace keeps growing! To cope with the curation and moderation of all user-generated content manually is no longer possible, it requires a lot of resources and time. It is much wiser and more efficient to use artificial intelligence for this purpose, especially since we have already developed it.

How It All Started

In 2016, our team took up developing the stock images search engine Everypixel.com. Then was created the Everypixel Aesthetics, a neural network to automatically clean search results…

We conducted a study about where and how designers are looking for stock photos. And it revealed a trend that shocked us.

It turns out that there is a huge difference in the approach to finding photographs between designers who are perfectionists, and those designers who do not suffer from perfectionism.

Perfectionists spend from 4 hours to 2 days trying to find an ideal picture. If they do not find anything, they would rather organize a photo shoot than agree to a non-ideal photo from image sites.

Non-perfectionists spend from 20 minutes to 2 hours to find a suitable photo. If they do not find an ideal one, they’ll use more or less suitable analogs in the project and go further.

Arm-wrestling on Everypixel.com

1 Everypixel searches only for licensed pictures, which you definitely will be able to use in a design project. Google Images is not license-friendly, and does not guarantee anything.

2 Everypixel shows both paid and free pictures. Moreover, you can easily switch from one type to another by just clicking the search filter. Google Images does not distinguish between paid and free images.

3 Everypixel shows how much the photo costs on different image sites, and then you decide which to download from. Google Images does not offer prices.

And Everypixel, as well as Google Images, can search by picture, and show similar images.

The same photos are being sold on one site and distributed for free on another under the CC0 license.

In most cases, this is because the author can sell photos on the image agency and simultaneously upload them to the free image site, like Unsplash or Flickr, to promote their portfolio. It is a common practice among stock photographers.

But it also happens when someone is trying to get profit from free photos and uploads them to microstock image sites under his or her name, for selling. Identifying such false authors is tough. As a rule, they become known only if the authentic author of the photos will notice that someone else is selling their work.

In both cases…

Now, Everypixel is searching not only by microstock sites, but also by 12 premium image sources.

Imagine that suddenly there was a massager built into your favorite old armchair, where you always relax watching TV after work. Without ruffle or excitement. Then, an automatic footrest was added. Your armchair has become so comfortable that you have actually thought about moving to freelancing, so as not to leave it for a minute. And the most interesting fact is that you did not pay a cent for these updates.

Everypixel as convenient, as your favorite armchair.

Today, a similar feeling has been experienced by users of the search engine for stock photos: Everypixel.

For the first time since the launch in September 2016, the site…

Everypixel has opened API for quickly assessing the aesthetic appeal of photos, as well as for automatically tagging images.

The API is available in free and paid versions.

You can process 100 requests per day or 5 requests per minute for free. Or if you are interested in a larger volume, choose a paid version: 1,000 requests for $ 0.5, without any limits on the number of requests.

The idea of making the Everypixel API belongs to our users. We received a lot of requests after the release of the Aesthetics Everypixel on the Product Hunt and decided to realize them.

On Aesthetics AI people liked the accuracy with which the neural network is picking keywords to photos. …

To teach the search engine to automatically distinguish fashionable photos from outdated ones, this is the task which the developers of Everypixel faced. To find out how well this approach works, we compared the search process on Everypixel with the popular free image websites Pixabay and Freepik.

Everypixel.com

At first glance, all free image websites are the same. But, as soon as it comes to searching, the difference becomes apparent. And, it’s not even in the content, though it’s important. The difference is in how well the search engine works.

Traditional search engines can’t see images, as humans do. They show pictures for your search query based solely on the description of photos. However, the description refers to the content and does not say anything about the style and quality of the picture. …

PRESS-RELEASE

04.06.2017 — New technology for ranking stock images based on their aesthetic value was launched. Neural network were trained to see the beauty of stock photos in the same way as people do. The algorithm is in the beta stage on Everypixel.

Everypixel Aesthetics

Designers and image editors are not satisfied with stock images they see. They say that stock trash in search results gets on their nerves, while they are looking for fresh, natural and authentic images. New algorithm was created to solve this problem by filtering dated photographs and bringing good ones at the first pages. …
