Name/Access: FaceSaerch
Frequency: There is no need to be regularly updated on changes to this site, simply return to the site each time you would need it, which should be infrequent.
Information: Once you type in a query, images are retrieved as spectrum of various image against a black background. You then can scan all of the images through a "CoverFlow"-like setting that you would see on an iPhone. Once you find an image that you would like, you can click on it and it will take you to where are can find the image on the web.
Query: Robert Iger
Evaluation: Unfortunately, even though Facesearch shows you where you can find the image, it does not provide a direct link as to how you can use the image on your site or presentation. Therefore, it is virtually useless for our presentation purposes. The only way it could be useful to you would for information gathering. Some images are used on sites/blogs that you wouldn't be able to find otherwise. However, I wouldn't recommend this technique as there are other search engines that would be far more beneficial. For this reason, I would rank it a 1 out of 10.
Miscellaneous: I do not recommend this site.

Frequency: There is no need to be regularly updated on changes to this site, simply return to the site each time you would need it, which should be infrequent.
Information: This site is supposed to be a "visual matching tool." It has a "celebrity matchup" feature, a shop match feature, and general image search as well.
Query: "Walt Disney Pictures
Evaluation: I found this site to be satisfactory. It got the job done, but you had to work hard on the queries. For example, if you typed in "disney," the images were pretty weak. But if you typed in "Disney magic" the images were awesome. I would rank it a six out of ten.
