WebImageMaximizer

Finds bigger image versions online

WebImageMaximizer

Introduction

A tiny PHP class to find bigger versions of images online. And also guess the name of any image. It's actually a hack, that makes use of Google Similar Image Search.

Features

  • Tiny size
  • Zero dependencies
  • Object-oriented usage
  • Easy to use (1 function, returns an array)

Installation

Just copy the class.webimagemaximizer.php into your working path, where it is easily accessible by your PHP script.

A Simple Example

<?php
require_once("class.webimagemaximizer.php");

// url for any small image
$smallImage = "http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-V0A30kKCaKE/U9YgNkcnKzI/AAAAAAACV4I/4ECi9eQGxxY/s1600/borjkajpiza.jpg";

// $result will contain the images information
$result = webImageMaximizer::getRelatedImages($smallImage);

header('content-type: text/plain');

echo "Your image: " . $smallImage . "\n";
echo "Online search results: \n";
echo "\n";

print_r($result);
?>

You'll find plenty more to play with in the examples folder.

Guessing game

You can use this class to make a tiny guessing game where people input their images and this class finds out the name of given image. Check out the guessing game demo.

Augumented reality

To find out what an image infront of you actually means, you can make use of the $result["guess"] value.

Note

  • Since this class works on Google's unofficial API. Thing's might change unexpectedly.
  • This class was made during a 2 hour educational hackathon. Don't use it in your proprietary code without checking Google's TOS.
