Google is continually surprising us with amazing features to make our lives easier in the Internet. One of these features belongs to the Image Search property of Google. Google Labs team has created “Google Similar Image Search“. This feature was created from Google Labs and is now a permanent element of Google Image Search.
At first Google Similar Image Search only works to find similar images of popularly searched pictures. But since it has been a permanent feature to Google Image Search, you will now notice that every image Google will find, related to what you are looking for, will have a “Similar” link below it which you can click on. When you do that, Google will then produce another search result with similar or duplicate images.
Since Google Image Search alone produces assortment of image results for topics or things we search. Having the “Similar” link will surely maximize our search time since it can narrow down our search to the specific things we are searching for.
Google Similar Image Search would be very useful to everyone. This is good resource for budding artists looking for inspiration or reference for a specific idea they have. If you have a project about a specific topic needing images you can simply click on “Similar” and check out the results which you can include in your work. You can also use it to find similar images on a specific website. This will truly save you time instead of just rummaging around the website which may have hundreds of posts and images.
Also, since everyone can just grab pictures in the Internet, Google Similar Image Search may also be useful for those who are looking for an image’s original source. This way you can ask permission from the image owner or put in proper crediting in case you will be using the image.
With Google Similar Image Search around people will not only save time, but also get more accuracy than a normal image search. This is definitely one Google feature to be thankful for.
