picsearch.com — 'Innovating image search'


I was messing around the other night and happened on one of my old posts here.

However, the search engine used the picture rather than words to find it.

How does that work?

From the website:

    What is Picsearch?

    Picsearch is a company at the cutting edge of visual search that provides an image search engine for individual users. This is available through Picsearch internet properties, such as www.picsearch.com. Picsearch also creates image search solutions for search engines and portals that are available through our licensing program.

    Picsearch connects its users to the vast visual resources of the internet. Picsearch uses its own technology to crawl the web and has created a searchable index of images. When a user sends a query to Picsearch the result is received as a set of thumbnail images that are sorted to ensure that they are as highly relevant as possible. When the user clicks on a thumbnail they are linked to the original web site where that image is located.

    Picsearch image search technology has three main features that make it unique. It has a relevancy unrivalled on the web due to its patent-pending indexing algorithms. Also, Picsearch has a family friendliness that allows children to surf in safety as all offensive material is filtered out by our advanced filtering systems. The site is also very user friendly as it's designed to be simple, fast and accurate. Due to all of these features, Picsearch is perfect for fun, school, business and families!
