Now Search Images By Sketch easily

Welcome back to Tech18, Yesterday I posted a site called TinEye, which allowed for reverse image searches, so that you could provide the image, and it would provide the location. TinEye – Reverse Image Search
Today, I have a similar website, but this time, you can search either by image, or by sketch! That’s right, you can sketch whatever you want right there on the page, and it will find images similar to it. Enjoy, and have fun!
Retrievr – search by sketch / search by image.

Retrievr is an experimental service which lets you search and explore in a selection of Flickr images by drawing a rough sketch.

Retrievr lets you find flickr images by drawing rough sketches of them. Finding images on Flickr is mostly textual (tags, keywords) or social (contacts, friends, groups). Retrievr is, like images, visual. At the same time it’s our testbed for image retrieval algorithms, so that when you add an image to a page in System One Collaboration, it gets you the potentially most similar pictures back in realtime. Or you can add it as ingredient in a custom search strategy.

Commenters are welcome 🙂 😀

    My prom is this Saturday and I want to do my hair in a updo. The stylist I'm going to told me to bring a picture of what I want but every picture I find seems like my hair's going to be too short. (It's shoulder length). I've tried searching images on every search engine I could think of but I can't find anything. Does anyone know where I can find some ideas? Or what I could do so I can try to sketch it?
