Live Image Search Adds Face, Portrait, B/W, & Related Features

The Live Search Blog announced new image search features over the weekend. The new features include a way to search for images of people by face, portrait, black & white and related people.

Here are examples of the new features in action, by searching for [paris]:

  • pairs without any filter, mostly shows Paris Hilton but does show an image of the Eiffel Tower
  • paris filter:face mostly shows face shots of Paris Hilton
  • paris filter:portrait shows more full body shows of Paris Hilton
  • paris filter:bw shows images of Paris Hilton, the Eiffel Tower and other images in black and white
  • The related people offered for the paris search include: Paris Hilton, Banksy, Danger Mouse, Ice Cube, Greg Wells, Fat Joe, Kara DioGuardi, Scott Storch, MC Ren, Immortal and others…

Google Operating System has a nice comparison of Live Search Face Filter compared to Google’s recently released Face filter.
