imgSeek is a collection of free open source projects for searching a collection of images using visual similarity. The image you are looking for can be expressed either as a rough painted sketch or as another image you supply.

  • Desktop version, a photo collection manager and viewer with content-based search and many other features;
  • Server version: for integrating a content-based image database into your own software or image-related web site.
Screenshot for the desktop version: after drawing on the left widget that simple red rectangle with black windows, a pale blue sky and the gray asphalt, the software returns these 10 best matches from your collection of thousands of images.
