Google Image Search is a very good photo search engine. It is NOT automatically filtered to remove potentially offensive content (although you can select filtering on the advanced search page, which the text link leads to). In 2008, Google began hosting an archive of millions of photos which have appeared in LIFE magazine. You can also search the LIFE photo archive with the form below.|
Yahoo! Image Search has their own index (acquired when they bought Inktomi a couple years ago), and provides image search for Lycos. The Yahoo! form included here with some advanced search options; there are a few more options available if you use the text link.
picsearch Photo Search is excellent at locating highly relevant images, including very few useless images, and eliminating potentially offensive content. With picsearch, the "family filter" is on at all times, and cannot be bypassed. This search uses a different index and produces results that are different from Yahoo-Bing-Lycos-Dogpile.
MSN Bing Photo Search formerly used an index provided by Inktomi. Since Yahoo! bought Inktomi, MSN is now using their own search index and software. Their image search produces fewer results than Google or Yahoo! (because they began indexing more recently), but they are catching up rapidly. search help - español
Lycos Multimedia Search unfortunately now produces image results similar to Yahoo & Bing.
Dogpile image search is also from the Yahoo! (fomerly Inktomi) index:
