About Pixsta

PIXSTA is a UK-based image and video search company founded in 2006 by Alexander Straub, Dr. Daniel Heesch and David Williams. The company has applied patent-pending scientific research into image search and retrieval in a fundamentally different way to other exponents of web search technology, allowing users to browse and search for relevant items using images rather than keywords. In essence, PIXSTA aims to enable an image to be submitted as a search term, generating results in the form of a set of visually similar images.
