Google has just graduated the Similar Images feature from Google Labs. If you will recall, the Similar Images feature was introduced sometime in April as a facility for finding more pictures of a particular search query when you use Google Image Search.
Similar Images now becomes the first major feature in Google Labs that has taken the big leap into becoming a permanent feature of Google Search. Google has recently overhauled its Google Labs service to harness more innovative and useful features that were being tested by Google engineers.
Interestingly, Google has to make this move right after Gazoopa, a similar images search engine come out in beta. Although Gazoopa has far more better features than Google Similar Images feature, it’s still is a competition that Gazoopa has to contend with.
So, let’s say you want to find images of Ancient Egypt. Google Images will provide you with a rich variety of results, including pyramids, maps, relics, drawings and other types of images. Instead of poring through hundreds of images, now you can simply click “Find similar images” to narrow down the results to the results to the type you want. (We’re rolling this out gradually, so the links in the below examples may not work for you yet.)
