Cydral is an image search engine that has now added support by providing meta searching across Google Yahoo Ask Jeeves, Fast and Dir. (No, I don't know anything about the last one either!) What's particularly interesting about Cydral is that it has the opportunity of doing a visual similarity search. So, if you get a result which is a picture of someone portrait style in black and white, Cydral can go off and find similar images. A search on confederate brought up pictures of the Confederate flag, and a visual similarity search returned other pictures of the flag, and also images that had a large amount of red and blue in them. You can also sort your results in the same way. It's really clever and I can see myself using it a lot.
