We proudly announce the launching of a new image search feature for our gallery called Isearch.

Do you have an image of Summer Glau and wonder if there is a bigger version? Or maybe you wonder where that image comes from? Or maybe you want to see more images like that?

Then you should check this out: Isearch
Upload a small image from your computer and see what we can find for you.


Charley_Dixon is the mastermind who came up with the great idea to develop this feature for the fans.

We hope you'll find our image search feature useful.

That's right, i did another testing with my new avatar (the one i'm using on the net), and iSearch returned the correct set of photos but the exact photos (part of a photoshoot), was on page 2.

It doesn't take any up any free space here because Charlie hosting Isearch elsewhere.

Seems like a very useful feature for finding images.
Maybe sounds a noobish question but wouldn't uploading images take away the free space, which is why we are encouraged to use third party image sharing rather than uploading directly? I guess it functions differently than standard uploading but I thought it wouldn't hurt asking.

When i want to upload images for the Summer Glau Wiki, i always check if there 's already a larger resolution or sometimes i'm not sure to what album they belong and i have to search manually through the gallery.

Isearch is a great help , thanks Charley.

I did some testing and i think it works primarily on colour tones; but the few tests were all sucessfull

Here's an example :

You are welcome.

Actually it uses both color histograms and Tamura textural features. Usually the results are pretty good but sometimes less relevant (from human point of view smile ) images may be ranked higher that more relevant ones. That's why it may often be a good idea to check a few pages of results.
