Exalead Enhancements to Image Search

French search provider, Exalead has been actively rolling out new features as of late. Not to long ago the company offered a Wikipedia vertical search engine. Now the company is offering an enhanced image search capability that integrates facial recognition software from LTU Technologies.

The Exalead image search offers searchers a variety of ways to rapidle narrow their image searches. The menu of choices offers these options:

  1. Size
    • Small
    • Medium
    • Large
  2. Content
    • Face
  3. Wallpapers
    • 800×600
    • 1024×768
    • 1280×1024
  4. Image color
    • Color
    • Grayscale
    • Black & White

The other image search engines I checked (Google, Yahoo!, Live Search (Microsoft), and Ask) do not offer a similar capability. Ask does offer some narrow your search options, but not nearly as extensive, and the others offer none.

Overall, this looks like a nice enhancement to image searching from Exalead.
