Another year has flown by. And what a year it’s been!
2022 has been one of our most eventful years with a lot of challenges, growth and a whole lot of fun! Before we jump into 2023, we’d like to share some of our most memorable moments and biggest achievements from last year – with you!
Revolutionizing Event Photography with AI & Face Recognition
Undoubtedly one of our biggest tasks this year was the rolling out of our newest feature in June – AI Photo Delivery Service – an AI-powered photo distribution method that ensures that each guest at an event automatically receives their images via a secure link. With our express delivery service, attendees at the event were able to get hold of their face-matched images during the event! This new feature turned out to be a huge hit right from the get-go, helping us form a stronger presence beyond the Indian market. The response was overwhelming wherein we were soon covering over 4000 events each month!
The New and Improved AI-powered Signature Albums
Design is a critical aspect of creating a visually aesthetic signature album. We wanted the Signature Album to be an area where you can stretch your creative muscles, so we’ve added a few tools to help you out. You can now customize various elements of each project like the cover image, fonts, colours, layout and so on.
We all love clicking selfies. But this year, we’ve managed to make it useful as well!
We launched the Faces Tab on the AI-based Signature Albums this year we wanted to put an end to the endless scrolling that happens when you’re trying to find your own picture within an album. By leveraging face recognition technology, we built this innovative feature that scans and finds your pictures among thousands by means of a single selfie!
Security is another aspect that we have strived to improve upon this year. In that regard, we have the option to secure your albums with password protection. The 4-digital passcode can be set and shared securely with the client so as to restrict unwanted access to the album.
We also ventured into proposal management, helping photographers put together sleek and efficient proposals that are as simple to create as it is to upload an Insta-story.
This year, our team pulled up together and drew a plan taking into consideration the feedback and suggestions we’d been receiving.
We released a bunch of updates this year, improving platform performance and UI, as well as adding a ton of exciting new features for you to enjoy. Here are a few highlights:

The Dream Team
The Premagic team tripled in 2022! Our core strength has grown to 26 passionate individuals, all of whom share the company’s core values. We held our Annual Meetup at Munnar this year for a few fun-filled days of team building and camaraderie.
What’s coming up in 2023?
You can soon automatically add your own distinct watermark to all your photos on the Signature and Selection album. The watermarks can be adjusted in size, opacity and position.
With this feature, you will be able to create multiple to-do lists with each event. Each item on the list can be assigned to a team member along with a due date. You can even set priority levels and labels on each event. This new feature allows better streamlining of tasks helping you stay more organized and productive.
Both these features are expected to be rolled out by the end of the first quarter.
We’d like to take a moment to thank all of our clients, investors and supporters. We couldn’t have achieved any of this without your ongoing support, feature requests, beta testing, and honest feedback. Your faith in us keeps us going to build and develop better solutions to serve your needs. You are the reason we do what we do.
