New innovations in search are being made every day - so many, in fact, that I seem to miss out on most of the news about the great new features.

One such feature that missed my radar is the facial recognition filters. If you go to Live Search Images and search for Jimi Hendrix, you'll get quite a variety of different shots.

If you go to the Search box and add filter:face to your query, you'll notice results that are quite different.

Imagine how useful this could be for school projects or research papers! No more scouring the Internet looking for good shots!

There are a couple of other filters out there: filter:portrait (head and shoulders) and filter:bw (black and white) and possibly others. The advancement in search is detailed in this Live Labs blog post.

Happy Searching!
