Do you have an image of an object you cannot identify? You could ask others to look at the picture and try identifying the object; but they might also not know. MacroGlossa is a web service that has come up with a brilliant solution to this problem.

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.

The service is still in alpha so do not expect supremely accurate results. Still however, the site is a great source for finding similar images even if at times it cannot accurately help identify the object in a picture.
