To quickly find the perfect photo in the photobank is one of the most important features our customers value and why they use Pixmac. A few weeks ago we launched the Visual similarity search tool which helps you quickly find the exact photo you are looking for.

One factor that slows the searching process is the amount of time a page takes to load. This processing time can keep you at your computer for several minutes. Over the course of a year, you could be spending more than an hour just waiting for page loads.

We know that you hate wasting your time and that is why we have introduced further acceleration.

Pixmac is now the FASTEST microstock agency!

Even Google recommends acceleration and there is a Google Page Speed tool that measures total page load time. The Google page load speed score is rated from 0 to 100.
We measured Pixmac’s score against the microstock competition around the world and the findings can be seen in the following table:
