Three new features in Live Search Images

We know you love searching for people with our image search engine—we’ve worked hard to make it easy and fun. Now we’ve made it even better. Today we shipped three new features that help you find faces, portraits and black and white images. Try these links to see them in action:

  1. without the new features – jimi hendrix
  2. with new face filtering on – jimi hendrix filter:face
  3. with new portrait filtering on – jimi hendrix filter:portrait
  4. with new black and white filtering on – jimi hendrix filter:bw

Make sure you also test our Related People feature on the right side of the screen.

For now, the way you access these new features is by typing. You’ll need to add filter:face, filter:portrait, or filter:bw to your query. While we’re thinking about how to make these features intuitively accessible through a drop-down menu or some other means, we’d love your feedback on them. Enjoy!

Cheers, Hugh
