Google Image search now supports dragging an image into the search box.

Will have to see how this one works out. Best test is to drag a photo of yourself and see what comes back :-)

My first result returned Barack Obama and Hugh Grant

No other images found.

Guess I am one of a kind.

It's not. My results included Sputnik, the Moon, 3 Stormtrooper helmets, Seal, and Leslie Nielson.

Yes, as far as the engine is concerned, the grey scales are important as are objects within the photo that we would normally disregard, such as black backgrounds or streaks etc...Whilst my search returned very few people that looked like me, the ration of face to total photo area, face size and background were all similar in the search results. I believe at this stage they are doing object recognition and maybe face detection to a small degree.

Not too sure if images are stored with metadata or the results are compared at run time, I prefer to think the image characteristics are indexed as and when they are stored and it is still a text search that returns results.

Re: Google Image search now supports dragging an image into the search box.

I assume all the photos you submit are secretely uploaded. One day Barack Obama, in a slow day at the office, will upload his photo and be told he's actually Upthehatters2008.

So...a CyberPunk Comedy Ballad ? That'd be interesting.

Re: Google Image search now supports dragging an image into the search box.

Another app. that seems to use similar technology is Google Goggles.

Apparently, if you take a photo of something on your iPhone, Google Goggles will search for related information. I saw this featured on TV yesterday. The overall impression was not very good. The usual search methods seemed as efficient or quicker.

Yep. For photos its not much use. Except looking for familiar logos and such.

But what it is useful for is translating text from letters.

Re: Google Image search now supports dragging an image into the search box.

I put in the pic I use on LinkedIn and it found my LinkedIn profile. I also have the same pic on Facebook but it didn't return that, so my privacy settings on there are probably Ok. As far as other images go, I just got a bunch of houses..

Interestingly, it also pointed me to a site called Yasni which has a scary amount of information on me and others who share the same name.
