The latest improvement to the search giant will help you ignore bad photographs taken by tourists and other unappealing still images
Ever find yourself in need of an image but unable to find it on Google? The search giant combs through most of the available photographs and graphics on the Internet, leaving you with a massive pile of results that doesn't really help. You need to illustrate a new article or find something that demonstrates, in pictures, what a new product looks like or how it works (OK, now I'm projecting my own problems with image searching onto you), but you're already on the fifth search page or sixth set of keywords before you grow frustrated and give up. You can't find that perfect image among the semi-related mess that Google has thrown your way.
Google is hoping that its new feature, which allows users to sort images by subject, will help solve your problems. And it should.
Unveiled this morning on the company's official blog, Google uses London as an example to demonstrate its latest tool. "Sorting by subject shows that some of the most popular images associated with London are the London Eye, Big Ben, Tower Bridge and the city at night," Google explained. "This organized view helps you find the images you were visualizing more quickly, so you might realize, 'Ah, that big clock tower is called Big Ben, that's what I was looking for.' You can then can click on the Big Ben group to find the best image within that subject group."
