About Imagga

Meet the team »

Imagga Ltd is a company that develops and offers technologies, services, and online tools for visual image search, image recognition and image processing in the cloud.

Imagga Ltd was founded in the end of 2008.

Visual recogntion and image search

We live in a world where we are constantly surrounded by visual information. Words are useful to search and explore, but so are images. In fact, words and images are the yin and yang of search. So we would like to show you how they are (inter)linked in the search process. And to bring back the fun to searching and exploring, while looking for this one image that you always knew was the right one for you and your project.

Imagga processing in the cloud

In the past whenever you wanted to process your digital photos or images you had to use a dedicated image processing software program installed on your PC or Mac, or a special app on your smartphone. But things are changing… You can now access the web from your smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC/Mac anytime and from anywhere.

Imagga API Overview

Imagga API is a set of image analysis and understanding technologies available as web services that allow owners of large image collections to automate the process of analyzing, organizing and searching through the images inside their collections.

The services are hosted at our end and are available on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) basis which makes them very flexible, scalable (applicable to any size of image collection), and affordable.

How does it work?

Our pricing model follows the scheme described below:

Free Demo Account

Free Trial Account

The API users can try out the Imagga API absolutely free of charge for a limited period of time (typically between a week and 1 month) and within a limit of free API calls, after they have signed up.

Setup Fee

Setup Fee

Once they have finished testing the API, and only in case they find it suitable for their needs and they would like to start using it in production mode, the API users need to pay a small one-time setup fee.



From then on, there is only a monthly pay-as-you-go fee based solely on the actual usage of the service (similarly to Amazon Web Services and other cloud platforms)
