What is Flow?

Flow Production is a term that originated in Lean manufacturing. Flow Retouching is influenced most heavily by the concept of "one-piece flow." The principle is simple: reduce work in progress by moving a piece along immediately until it's done, instead of batching. It's how Pixelz has been operating internally for years while developing our lean retouching smart factory.

How does Flow Retouching work?

Shoot a product. Upload that product’s photos to Pixelz. Repeat.

While you’re shooting, we’re retouching—and quite possibly you’ll have retouched photos back while you’re shooting your next product.

Upload via software integration, API, FTP, or the web. What matters is that you’re uploading continuously, instead of delaying to batch.
