Google introduces image search by subject

10 May 2011

It's easy to see the immediate benefits of having an image search which can be defined further by subject and now, thanks to Google, internet users can do just that.

The new search capability means it's easier to find exactly what you want in a picture, even when you're not entirely sure what that is.

A post today on Google's blog said: "You can also use this feature to explore categories of a general topic that may be easier to learn about visually, like flower varieties or dog breeds. For example, if you want to get flowers for someone but you only know what their favorite kind looks like, not the name of it, you can sort by subject to learn different flower types and discover the name of the type you’re looking for.
