Google Similar Image Search

Google have created a new way of searching for images using pictures rather that words.  It’s called “Similar Images”.  The traditional Google Images Search is a great tool for finding pictures on the web, but can be frustrating when you’re searching for a term that has many meanings. For example “Paris”; you could be searching for Paris the city or Paris Hilton.

With the new Google Similar Images Search that has been added to Google Labs they are hoping that image search will now improve.  

When searching for an image, “Similar Images” will appear as a link underneath the thumbnail images of your search results.  By clicking on “similar images” below the image you like, it will return all images that look visually similar to the one you selected.  Using visual similarity, you don’t have to refine the text/keyword of your search, instead, you can just click on the similar images link of an image you like.

A very cool tool for finding many images in a particular category with a similar look, it will narrow down the results to exactly what your trying to find!

To try it for yourself go to: Google Similar Images Search

Happy Searching!
