About Popsa

Technology has revolutionised how we capture our lives, but amid the mass of photos, precious moments are being lost in the cloud or to the depths of our camera roles, never to be seen again.

Popsa is changing how we relive our life stories, automating what has always been a laborious curation and design process into an instant experience fit for the modern world.

We want to give our customers beautiful ways to relive their photos; experiences that add value and form narratives but without them having to invest time they don't have.

We’ve smashed all our targets for three years running, but we've only scratched the surface on what we want to achieve.

The Vision

The photos we take have become emblematic of our identities. In an ever-accelerating, polarised society, making sense of our lives has never been more important.

Popsa is harnessing the power of data for the greater good.

We are combining the latest machine learning technology with sophisticated design to automatically create artefacts that allow people to stop and reflect and to spark conversations with those around them.

Printed products will always be at the heart of what we do but our ultimate ambition is to enrich and beautifully present the world’s stories across both physical and digital mediums.
