Web Resource Analysis: Image Search

Google Image

  • Access: http://images.google.com
  • Frequency: Whenever I needed an image for a page!
  • Information: Returns images of all types. Most useful is the post-query sorting option.
  • Query: Eg., [UMG ceo]
  • Evaluation: 9
  • Miscellaneous: The best Image search I used. It had more variety of images and the best sorting options. I used the "sort by" option to the fullest, finding "face" pictures of artists and CEOs.

Exalead

  • Access: http://www.exalead.com/search/
  • Frequency: Whenever I needed an image for a page!
  • Information: Returns images of less types than Google image. The "face search" option is handy, but the results aren't as good as Google's.
  • Query: Eg., [beyonce]
  • Evaluation: 7
  • Miscellaneous: Simply not as much variety as Google, but more fun/easier to use in that you can just keep scrolling downward and the results keep coming.
