As creatives, you’ve all been there. You’ve found an image that you love. It’s exactly what you were looking for. But it’s been sitting in the “inspiration” folder on your desktop for the past 18 months and you can’t remember where you found it for love nor money. On the rare chance that you DO find where it originated, you discover that it’s non-licensable, and you’re back to square one. Or maybe you’ve comped up a concept that your client falls in love with, only to explain they can’t use that photo as you found it on Google Images. Sound familiar?
Imagine a tool existed that allowed you to use any image, from anywhere, like Google Images, Pinterest, or your desktop inspiration folder, to search for images that were similar, but had the added bonus of being commercially available? ImageBrief introduces the world’s first Reverse Image Search engine for commercial images, specifically for this purpose.
It works like this:
1. Grab any image you’ve found from anywhere on the web.
2. Pop it into Reverse Image Search.
3. Instantly uncover similar images that are commercially available to license.
ImageBrief Reverse Image Search uses visual recognition technology in order to sort through a database of over 200,000 images from the personal marketplaces of the ImageBrief curated global network of over 40,000 pro photographers. Based around the insight that sometimes you just ‘know it when you see it’, the More Like This feature allows you to use other images, rather than keywords, to hone your search.
