Pixsy, a leading developer of image search solutions, today announced the launch of a next generation photo search engine at pixsy.com. Traditional search engines use technology called a "spider" that crawl the web to find photos.
Pixsy, however, accesses special databases of images thru technology partnerships with content providers. Pixsy has partnerships that enable the searching of blogs, mobile blogs, social networks, and sites that generate large amounts of compelling photo content. The result are unique photos and a new method for discovering content across the Web.
Image Search as Content Discovery Tool
The Pixsy image search engine enables users to discover photos in new corners of the Web. For example, a search for "Amsterdam" could yield photos that exist on a blog or social network, thereby enabling the user to learn more about that person and their photographs. This opens up new ideas and opportunities for users to share stories, create personal connections, inspire new ideas and business partnerships, license photographs, engage in offline experiences, or a variety of other possitibilities.
Users perform image searches for a variety of purposes:
• to find photos to license;
• for use on their desktop or mobile phone;
• for entertainment;
• to email to a friend;
• for printing and merchandising;
• to discover new people and ideas;
• for general inspiration.
