Finding a particular image on several platforms such as Google Image Search, Flickr or Photobucket for your project work might be quite tough and sometimes we have wasted a significant portion of our time doing this. However, with Ginipic, an excellent image search desktop-based app, can help us solve this problem. After using the the free software for the past half an hour, I’m pretty impressed by the amazing interface that Ginipic offers. Not only that, you can now search from multiple image search engines, photo-sharing websites or your own picture folders simultaneously.
The usual way people browse for photos is that they head to for example Google Image Search. After finding what they want, they would download it to the hard disk. Next, copy and paste the image to their Powerpoint presentations or a Word document. Sounds familiar right?
You can eliminate some of these steps I’ve mentioned above when using Ginipic. Basically, all you need to do is to enter a search query and simply drag and drop the image to anywhere you want. Besides that, there are options whereby users can also post it to blog, save locally, share with your friends on social networks or set it as wallpaper.
When you search for an image, Ginipic will present to you the search results in thumbnails cluttered together. You can then preview the full size by clicking on it. Even though it allows you to view many of them at once glance, but I feel that one will get confuse as there are at least 100+ thumbnails in one page! Another downside is that it doesn’t provides a short description that accompanies with the photo just like Google Image Search.
This clever app will filter out the duplicates from multiple sources so that you would not be able to find similar images on the search results page. The Advanced Search feature gives you the ability to customize your queries in each source.
Currently, Ginipic only supports the Windows OS but sadly not the Mac OS yet. It requires your computer to have installed Microsoft .NET Framework in order to run the software.
