Google introduces 'Sort by Subject' to image searches


Recommended Posts



Google has just started rolling out a new feature to its Google Images search. The new "sort by subject" feature will allow you search images by subject, which means it's easier to find exactly what you want in a picture, even when you're not entirely sure what that is.

If you're looking for an image of a dog, but you don't really know what dog you're looking for. So instead of having to look for a site about dogs, just go to Google Images and type dogs.

"Sorting by subject uses algorithms that identify relationships among images found on the web and presents those images in visual groups, expanding on the technology developed for Google Similar Images and Google Image Swirl," said Donald Tanguay of the Google Images team. "By looking at multiple sources of similarities, such as pixel values and semantic relationships, and by mining massive amounts of data, we can make meaningful connections and groupings among images."

The new search capability should be available globally within a week or so.
