PicClick: Etsy Visual Shopper

Published on .

Anyone who's shopped Etsy knows how hard it is to sift through the site's growing population of handmade products, but PicClick now offers its visual search tool to help the sort through the goods at a glance—kind of like TweetDeck, but for shopping.

PicClick's shopping interface has already helped online shoppers get through the oodles of listings on eBay, which is still primarily a list-based service. As PicClick explains on its site, "with broadband, stores can be much more image focused and show a bunch of products all at once. The human mind can scan and process images much more quickly than text."
