Google Image Search adds Style

Yes, you got it right, Google Image Search has added another interesting element to the search, Image Style. Now on, you can search specific images on Google by specifying a search filter criteria based on the Image Style. Image style is different as compared to the Google Image Face Search which was about searching for images with faces.

Now on you can filter Google Image Search results based on faces, clip art, line drawings, photo content, news content.

To see the effect of these new options, let’s take a look at the first few results for “Christmas,” one of our most popular queries on Image Search right now.
