How safe is picsearch
I know it was unblocked by the LA but they let adult content through via google images so that isn't much to go on.
Can't find any adult content, just thought I'd check, also are people just allowing picsearch or the whole category? Image Search seems a tad dangerous
As far as I know, its completely clean.
However, our staff hate it. With a vengeance.
How come they hate it? is that hate using it as opposed to google images?
They don't find it as friendly.
My name is Björn and I'm the product manager of Picsearch.
We aim to be 100% clean and users do not have the ability to turn off our filters.
We're launching a new design on picsearch.de I hope your users will like it better. We are doing some testing in Germany first and will launch on picsearch.com soon.
Thanks for your honest feedback. There are legal concerns with the way that google implements search which prevent us from doing what they do. What would be your number one wish for how we could improve the service further?
I cant speak for my students, but I like being able to search for an image of an exact size in pixel dimensions. I'd also prefer it if when clicking on a thumbnail image in the search results, I just want to see a larger image, not go to the website page. 90% of the time I just want to see a larger view of the image to see if its suitable.
Other than that I think its great you provide a pre filtered image search for people to use.
Thank you Gaz. I will see what we can do about that. You're welcome to contact me if you have other questions about picsearch.
google seem to be above the law..... probably because they assist the law quite heavily.

Our filtering combines automated text and image classification with a manual quality assurance step. Everything is not pre-approved but once we find non-appropriate content on a site we often block the entire site to be on the safe side.
