Group photos, candid shots, or staged requests will be sent directly to your device.
How it Works
You enjoy the moment, we’ll capture it.
Find a venue
Find out where Pixsle photographers are located and head out to those venues.
Once at a venue, your job is to enjoy your time! Let our photographers capture the moments.
Receive your photos
Voilà! Your captured photos are sent directly to your device instantly. It’s that easy.
Pixsle uses facial recognition and matching to deliver photos.
To perform the face matching, Pixsle uses A.I. facial recognition. This provides an extremely powerful facial image recognition algorithm that can compare billions of images daily. The artificial intelligence ensures a highly scalable and efficient face-scanning technology with deep learning that improves the accuracy of the match.
Knowing what you look like is important for our face matching. This means that when you set up an account, 10 photos of yourself is required. Don’t worry these photos will not be shown publicly. In fact, these photos are stored on an encrypted server and associated solely with your personal account. Once the account is set up, you’re good for life. Anytime a Pixsle photographer captures a moment of you, you’ll receive it.
no account, no problem
You’re not out of luck just yet! All photographs are stored for 1 month after capture. This allows new users to create an account and still receive their moments. So hurry, sign up and see if you already have some photos waiting for you.
CREATE A PIXSLE
Once a profile is created, you will be ready to receive photos from photographers.
10 Photos of yourself
When creating a profile, select 10 photos of your face. Avoid selecting photos that are blurry, dated, or instances where your face is obstructed in any way (i.e. glasses or a hat). Remember, you’re telling us what you look like so our face matching algorithms can send you your professional photos correctly. No photos that you select when creating a Pixsle profile will be displayed publicly.
linking social media accounts
By allowing access to Facebook and Instagram, you will now be able to choose images from your social media pages to use in setting up your account. It makes the signup process much smoother. As always, Pixsle will never post anything to your social accounts.

part of the team
Pixsle is always looking for more photographers to help shoot inspiring photos at our partnered venues. We look for a mixture of experience, creativity, and personality. If you’re interested in joining the movement and becoming a photographer, please download the application. We are based out of Toledo, Ohio but have venues around the Midwest United States. Remember to send us a link to your personal portfolio if you have one.
As a Pixsle photographer, all deskwork has been taken care of. You get to do what you do best – capture inspiring moments. Go have fun, socialize, and leave your touch on the photography industry.
on the job
Once hired, you will be assigned a venue, a monthly timeslot for photography, and a venue logo. All photographers will wear Pixsle apparel and field a Canon DSLR camera (models and brands are expanding). At the venue, all you have to do is capture some moments for the eventgoers.
No catch. We swear. Venues pay Pixsle to capture moments on their property and distribute their logo making your photos complete free to use and share. We try to make sure all the logos are tasteful and hope to add value to the photographs, but if for some reason you want to remove a venue logo you can for $0.99.
First, sorry about that. Second, did you check to make sure you’re running the most current version? If not, be sure to update the app. If this doesn’t work, we urge you to reach out. With Pixsle still in its infancy, bugs do sometimes occur. Please send an email to email@example.com and we will write back soon. Screenshots and app version often help when explaining the bug.
First, make sure you’ve visited a venue with a Pixsle photographer and check that they’ve taken a photo of you. Feel free to ask them for a staged photo, they don’t bite! If the photo still doesn’t send, you could have issues with your profile setup. We suggest going to your profile and resetting your “facial training data”. By doing this, you are removing your facial data associated with your account and will be prompted to select more photos of yourself to better help Pixsle deliver live captures. If this still doesn’t fix it, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Facial training photos are how we deliver photos to your device. Using these images we build a unique profile for your account using our Facial Recognition algorithms. You want to make sure all the photos you select are of your face and your face only. If you do not select your face, this could throw off the algorithms and results in photos not delivering correctly to your device. Remember, you can always reset this data and select 10 images all over again.
Unfortunately, we do not have the full resolution file handy. The photos go through some compression to allow the data to be sent quickly and efficiently. Don’t worry though, we’re working to implement this into our app so you can download the raw files.
Ugh, we hate hearing this. We’re very sorry about that. Our initial thought is that your “facial training” data is not properly set. We suggest resetting this data by going into your profile and selecting “reset facial training data”. If you choose to go this route, try selecting 10 new photos of yourself (dated photos sometimes do not work very well). If this still occurs, please contact support at email@example.com. We are looking to add an “I’m not in this photo” option which will help our facial recognition AI grow and learn from the mistake.
We’re always looking for photographers to help support our venue presence and continue to provide inspiring photographs for eventgoers. However, techies are also welcome. If you feel like you’d like to join a new movement, advance your career, and work for an up and coming mobile application, please send resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
