Google image search on the fly

Google’s new experimental Similar Images feature in Google Labs has improved image searching with the addition of ‘similar images’, allowing you to narrow your search and change your mind on the fly. Have a look here. It’s in its experimental stages.

I searched ‘school’ and, predictably, got all types of ‘school’ images.



What I specifically wanted was images of classroom interiors so I clicked on ‘similar images’ under the one result.


I think this is an easy way to get rid of unwanted results and refine your search.

What do you think?

  1. Thanks for this helpful tip. Focus is given new meaning with this helpful image search. Google is a master of narrowing the search from an infinity of resources.

  2. Hi Paul, How intuitive do you think searching will be in the near future? Have you read ‘Feed’ by M.T. Anderson?

  3. Intuitive searching, please elaborate. ‘Feed’ sounds interesting.
