Sometimes I gotta let my geek flag fly!
I confess I’m all about the latest cool Internet tools and sites. I especially enjoy graphics, so like many of you I’ve wasted… I mean, “invested” some time on Pinterest. Have you tried it?
What’s your favorite new site or tool?
Another tool (plug-in & site really) I love is TinEye which allows one to do reverse searches on images. Basically you can find other places an image appears on the web (including your own).
And Google rolled out Search by Image:
“Now you can explore the web in an entirely new way by beginning your Google search with an image. Learn more about images on the web and your own photos.”
Below is a sample. Is it just me or does this still need a bit of work? I uploaded a photo of (what else?) myself and these are the images they found visually similar.
Perhaps I’m being unfair? They do all have faces and dark backgrounds. So, which of these do you think is my doppelgänger? Uncanny isn’t it?
