Proven more accurate than anything on the market today.
Don’t believe us. Let us prove it.

Photon is a revolutionary reverse image search solution developed by 1st1 Technologies and powered by their proprietary algorithm, DejaVuAI®, that allows rapid searching 1:N, N:1, or M:N, regardless of image adjustments. It automatically identifies scale and rotation of the matched images, providing immediate image registration.

Photon efficiently indexes and processes images on the fly, adding and removing images from datasets without the need to retrain in a machine-learning model. Photon is faster than any SIFT or AI/ML tool and more accurate than any solution available in today’s market. Saving you time, compute power, money, and frustration.

Photon finds any image regardless of it being cropped, recolored, warped, used in fake news, mashed up with other images, zoomed in, made fuzzy... you name it, Photon finds it.

Flavors of Photon
