As my Microsoft Web Only diet continues, I found myself using Live.com Image Search today to put together a presentation. I hate text heavy Powerpoint presentations so I try to go to the Seth Godin school of Powerpoint and limit myself to six words per slide (e.g. lots of pictures.) Historically, Google Image Search has been my friend when I put a presentation together.
I loved Live.com Image Search – it’s substantially better than Google’s. The actual image search is about the same, but the UI is dramatically better. It’s very Ajaxy – resize bar, mouse over to enlarge image and get image detail, drag and drop image to other apps, infinite scroll (rather than next, next, next), and overall nice / fast presentation. Someone on the Google Image Search team needs to take a look.
