The word Aesthetics comes from Greek and means the study of perception. It is about the human perception of what is displayed in a photograph. An aesthetic photo can be taken of both beautiful and ugly objects. However, it is significantly easier to take a beautiful photo of beautiful objects. Some subjects successfully resist any aesthetic intent. Aesthetics here means a design that binds the viewer and leads him or her to the actual motif. Aesthetics also means conciseness, expressiveness, recognizability. Something that catches the eye.

The app uses an AI model based on Convolutional Neurals Networks , that is trained to mimic how real persons would rate the pictures. The dataset used to optimize the model consists of 20.000+ images annotated with human-labeled aesthetic scores.

  • The AI-model is too complex to run it in the browser. Therefore we need to upload the pictures to our server. We delete them of course, after they are analyzed.

  • The images you upload are processed on our server, but we never save or publish them. We just keep the result for statistics without the photo.

  • No (maybe in the future)

  • No, unfortunetly it would be difficult to publish a standalone application, as we rely on multiple services of of Google Cloud
