Hi, I was wondering if I can search for similar images with Custom search? I've tried to implement a regular search (tested it on cse page), but pictures passed as urls are not found. However, when I try to do that manually, there are search results.

Deepak, thank you for a quick reply!
So, what I want to do is to search for similar (matching) images like searching by image in Google:

I created a custom programmable search. However, when I try to enter URL on the settings page, nothing is found both on the Internet search (Интернет in Russian) and image search (Изображения).

Can you please tell me if it is possible to get matching/similar images via API? If so, what should I put in the query?

Hi Josh and Akshay,

You can enable image search for your search engine from the Programmable Search Engine control panel > Setup > Basics page:

Once you perform a search, on the results page there will be 2 tabs displayed. One "Web" and other "Images". To get image results, you need to click on "Image" tab.

Thanks

Hi all. I'm looking for the same feature, and I think that the provided solution is not right.

The question is about performing a search with an input image. Not searching for images related to some text.

Something like performing a search here: https://www.google.com/imghp?hl=en&authuser=0&ogbl

Is there a way to provide the custom search api with an image file or with an image url to perform the search for similar images?

Thanks in advance.
