Use our image matching algorithm to search over 800 million images along with image data from all of the major image search engines.
As image theft is not limited to one region or country, Berify utilizes its reverse image search API to find exact and similar matches.
The company’s preference of using an API, gives all users direct access to major search engines, while simultaneously fine-tuning those results with Berify’s unique image search algorithm. Specifically, this means that Berify will showcase better results than you would find yourself on search engines like Google or Bing.
However, those who are new to reverse image searching may still be stumped as to what an API is and if it is worth the cost. Unless your background is in software development, an API is almost equally confusing when called by its unabbreviated term, Application Programming Interface.
First, it helps to imagine a visual for what we call the “World Wide Web.” The reason you can type a web address into your browser and go to any page that you choose (should it exist) is because the internet is similar to an interlaced web.
Whether you think of that as a spider web or the sci-fi term “matrix,” what we think of as being “online” is essentially accessing pages that are tied into and connected by “servers.”
When you visit any given website (Gmail, YouTube, Facebook), you can access it because it is stored on a “remote server.” A remote server is a computer that is remotely located and built to process requests optimally. Each of us could make a simpler form on our computer. This would be called a “local server” and be at least enough to service our webpage.
Local servers are still used by web developers and engineers to develop and test websites before their public release. The way that your computer interacts with a remote server is through coding. When you type the web address you’d like to visit; the request is sent out to that website’s remote server.
In return, your web browser receives a code in response and can read that code and display the content and information on the page. Specifically, an API is the active part of a remote server which receives or sends requests and responses. This means that Berify’s API can best interpret and produce results.
In general, companies like Berify, which want to be the most efficient, often package API’s for use. This is frequently done to par the site with another more critical website or search engine. As is the case for Berify’s reverse image search – by bypassing and eliminating the site’s server, their API search results are interpreted through Berify’s specialized algorithm.
