Hi All, I have a project need use reverse image search. We are looking for open source solution. We wish to enable our system automatically search our image database when user upload a image, match it and list similar images.

We had tried some api such as google cloud vision api and some other, but most of them is quite expensive. We can not afford to promote this service as the cost.

I am not sure whether OpenCV can increase the accuracy and how? Anyone give some suggestion? Thanks a lot.

  • what is the purpose of your reverse search ?
  • do you have an actual database ?
  • are you able / willing to write code ? (or even , maintain other's ?)

sure you can write something like that using opencv, but chances to find something ready-made are low.

I think my question should be "How to detect object from a complex image such as interior design image". This is step 1. Step 2 is use the object we found to search from our image database. It seems that there are many solutions such as faiss for step 2.

  1. Search all objects form the image user uploaded, then use reverse image search to find similar image.
  2. Yes
  3. Yes. But not too much.
