MacroGlossa is an image comparison website. The idea behind it is to help people identify the objects in their pictures. Whether you have a picture of an animal, a painting, a landscape, or some other thing, you can pass it through MacroGlossa’s interface.

The site then tries matching your specified image with many available on the web. The search might take a while; it is advisable to narrow it down using the categories listed on the site: animals, biological, panoramic, and artistic. The search results are then displayed below your specified image.
