JUPITERMEDIA'S HEMERA IMAGES DIVISION IMPLEMENTS VISUAL SEARCH
(Gatineau, Canada - November 22, 2004) -- JupiterImages, a division of Jupitermedia Corporation, (Nasdaq: JUPM) today announced that Hemera Images® (www.hemera.com), a world leader in wholly owned, royalty-free digital image content, has added visual search capabilities on Hemera Image Express and AbleStock.com®. Visual search allows users to find images with similar colors, themes and compositions with just one click.
"The visual search element offers our customers a brand new way to explore image collections creatively," said Alan M. Meckler, Chairman and CEO of Jupitermedia Corporation.
"Sometimes it's easier to search for visual similarities than by keywords alone, and we know our customers will appreciate this complement to traditional search methods," added Meckler.
The new search engines on Hemera Image Express and AbleStock.com have been enhanced by Idée Inc.'s Espion Visual Search, a powerful and innovative visual search technology that analyzes the pixels in each image and creates a searchable index of colors, patterns and compositions in online image collections. When reviewing the results of an initial keyword search, users can now look for visually similar images by clicking the visual search button on the search results page. Users have the option to use the visual search feature with or without entering keywords.
"Hemera Images is renowned for its outstanding line of digital image products and we are proud of their adoption of Espion Visual Search technology," said Leila Boujnane, Chief Executive Officer of Idée Inc.
Hemera Image Express offers more than 500,000 images in low- and medium-resolution at www.imageexpress.com. AbleStock.com offers nearly 80,000 high-resolution images via subscriptions and single-image downloads at www.ablestock.com.
