Stock Podium is a stock images marketplace, that makes searching for stock images easy and fast by using intuitive filters and advanced visual similarity technology.
Creative thinking visualizes ideas in images. In our daily life we often use visual similarity to describe what we like or dislike and to identify people, places and events. Our goal is to make visual search for stock images as native and intuitive as key word search is for text.
To assist customers in finding the right images we have implemented an image recognition technology that discovers similarity in color and shape. There are several ways to use the visual search: uploading the picture from a computer, submitting url or simply using one of the images in a native key word search query. Further more, we offer advanced filter options to narrow and refine search results (color matching, image format, licensed usage, etc.) The user has available a vast collection of images and power tools to pick the right picture in a more intelligent and timely fashion.
Visual similarity search dramatically improves user experience and saves time. You do not have to browse through hundreds of pages of search results. It’s simply a matter of a couple clicks to find proper images using the visual similarity tools.
