Using Google Images to Find Faces from Google News

Last month, Barry wrote an interesting post about how you can refine your Google Image search results to show only faces. For example, by adding "&imgtype=face" to the end of a search string, you could find only faces of people.

This week, our friends at Cre8asite Forums and DigitalPoint Forums seemed to have come across this discovery. (Now why is it that you didn't notice it when we blogged about it in June? Here's a thought!) ;)

But interestingly enough, the Cre8asite Forums goes further to show how you can refine search results to show only news items. Simply append "&imgtype=news" to your search results.

Here are the various breakdowns of the searches:

Paris (no filter) Paris (face filter) Paris (face/news filters applied)

There's a significant difference if you use these operators to restrict your searches.

Forum discussion continues at Cre8asite Forums and DigitalPoint Forums.
