How does 'image search' work?

We don’t believe that robots and algorithms can tell you what a really great picture is, yet.

But we do believe they can help. Our revolutionary ‘Picked’ image-filtering algorithm is trained by our in-house image curation team to evaluate millions of images and pick out the best results for buyers.

Our search looks at the title, caption, tags and price of each image to ensure that the returning results are relevant and meet the search criteria, but we also use Picfair’s curation process including images awarded with a star, images featured in blog posts and other awards help qualitatively sort the results.

Our search algorithm is evolving every day, growing alongside our library to provide a search that is relevant, intuitive and delightful.
