Leading cloud based storage service Dropbox has been acquiring many start-ups these days. Recently it acquired an Israel based Mobile productivity startup, Cloudon and now a visual version control and collaboration platform Pixelapse is also a part of Dropbox acquisition this year.
Back in 2011, Shravan Reddy and Min Mig found Pixelapse in Palo Alto. Later in 2012, this company participated in the Stanford University's StartX (affiliated accelerator program ) and got some spotlight for showing their startup with a unique idea.

Basically, Pixelapse offers control on graphics projects, and the ability to work on Windows and Mac with over 50 file formats including Adobe's Photoshop and Illustrator. Team collaboration is possible on editing files by using annotation and visual comparison tools.
Now this is the second acquisition of Dropbox in 2015. Pixelapse on it's official blog said, "Pixelapse as a standalone product will continue to operate and be supported for the next year as we work towards this goal, at which point we'll offer a migration plan for your work."
Now Dropbox has Droptalk, Hackpad, Photo app Loom, CloudOn and Pixelapse in it's acquisition list.
