The article describes how to search the Internet for photos, which services are suitable for this and what they are able to do.
The heyday of digital technology
In our time, no one is surprisedvarious digital technologies. What still seemed like a fantasy a few years ago is now being realized, even if sometimes in the form of single concepts. And not all ideas turn out to be successful. But older people perfectly remember those times when the Internet was terribly expensive, slow and not everyone could afford it. However, like a normal computer. And, by the way, because of slow loading of pages, many in general disconnected in the browser display of images. Hardly they could imagine that one day such a convenient function would be created, like searching the Internet for a photo. So how does it work and what functions does it have? In this we will understand.
Like any information search on the Internet, waitfrom similar systems of something ideal and absolutely exact corresponding it is not necessary - all depends on a search request, already indexed images, their quality and much more. But still running a search on the Internet for a photo is pretty good. But how is it arranged?
Simplified, the search engines graduallyindex new content that appears on the Internet, and supply it with appropriate tags, which also depend on the popularity of search queries and the content itself. Simply put, it's much easier to find some popular picture on the Internet than a personal photo downloaded a long time ago on a little-known resource. But how do you search the Internet for photos?
No additional software to download andyou do not need to install it, the search works great with standard browser tools in popular search engines. Here it is worth making a reservation: you can search for photos on the Internet in two ways: either based on the downloaded image, or without it, using only the description in the corresponding field.
Such an opportunity is provided by all majorsearch engines, for example, "Yandex" and Google. Let's start with the first one. To do this, go to https://yandex.ru/images/ and select the icon on the top left of the photo you want to download, on the basis of which you will search for similar photos on the Internet. Yes, that's right, because if this photo is unique, it does not occur anywhere else on the Internet or is simply not indexed, then the system will produce images similar to it. But sometimes this is exactly what you need.
In the case of Google, everything is very similar. Go to https://www.google.com/imghp and then enter a picture description or download it from your computer, and soon enjoy the results.
In addition to obvious convenience, in similar systemsthere is another useful property, this is the recognition of what is on the image. For example, if you download a photo of an actor from a movie whose name can not be recalled, the search engine will almost certainly correctly identify it.
Also in different browsers there are convenient functionsquick search. In the "Yandex.Browser" and Google Chrome, for example, you just need to click on an interesting photo on the Internet and select the item "Find a picture ...".
Often one can meet the question of whether there is aa separate program for searching photos on the Internet. Unfortunately, this is not yet available, and it's not just that. Such searches require huge computing power, with which even the most powerful home computer can not cope.
So we figured out how to look for similar images on the Internet. As you can see, there is nothing complicated in this.
