How do 'categories' work?

With such a wealth of brilliant images on Picfair, we wanted to create categories that would gather images of our most popular topics together.


Like search, categories are creating using an algorithmic formula that searches our library for images on a given topic that are both relevant and beautiful.


Categories are 'live', so as new images are added to the site, the categories will update accordingly.


The formula that we use to create the categories is constantly being refined, but like search, it is a half human - half machine algorithm that looks for relevant titles, captions and tags, and indications of quality like stars and views.

See all of our categories here.
