You’ve probably heard that all of us have a double out there somewhere. Maybe it’s a famous person who resembles you, or maybe it’s just some regular person from Akron. We’ve all had someone tell us we look like someone else. It can be either fun or annoying, depending on the situation. What if Google could find photos that are visually similar so that you’d know the name of that person from Akron? Well, Google images does have a feature that might help, but it’s mostly just to see all the places a single image appears online, even if it does provide some (barely) visually similar images.
If you want to give this a try, go to Google Images, click on the little camera, provide a photo or link to a photo, and search. It will show you where the photo appears online and then give you some similar images. In case that’s too much work for you, I will show you what the results looked like for me. Maybe your results will be better. After trying the search with three images, I can say that my own results were the best of the first three, but my friend Alex’s were the funniest. In order for this page to load faster, I've got multiple pages. Let’s take a look.
My look-alikes. These aren't bad looking guys. Then again, neither am I.
