Everypixel is a stock photo engine that aims to deliver the best selection of images from every stock photo agency on the planet. So far thirty agencies have joined the project but the Russian team behind Everypixel hopes to expand even more.
The aim is not just to help potential buyers find the best images at the best price, but also to help photographers understand whether their work corresponds to the modern trends of visual communication.
This is where Photo Aesthetics comes into play. It is a tool that tells you how “awesome” your photo is. Thanks to a special algorithm called Neural Network – a code that looks like a sequence of neurons – the software can be taught and it can also learn independently by analyzing and memorizing a variety of information.
Aesthetics was originally designed as a tool for buyers and authors of stock photographs but Everypixel decided to release a public beta version for you to try. Simply upload a photo or paste a URL and the software will rate your photo, letting you know whether it’s “awesome enough” for the stock photography market. It will also list a series of keywords related to your image. Click any of them and it will jump to a selection of the best stock photos associated with that keyword.
Now, of course, letting a third party algorithm judge your photo must be taken as a starting point rather than personally. The software tells you if the image is potentially appealing or not in relation to stock photography and the trends of that particular market; it is not designed to tell you if your photo is good or bad on a general level. The human eyes, heart and mind will certainly give you a better answer to that!
Anyway according to Aesthetics, my picture below has an 88.5% chance of being awesome. Shoud I give it a go? 😉
