Besides, Yahoo states that after you have initially searched for the photo you can make use of the Similarity Search feature by just clicking the "..." symbol in the upper right of the photo you are looking for. Yahoo will then surface similar images for you.


To make it more clearer, if you are looking for pictures of tabby cats. You can search for the keyword "cat" and filter by color, but you'll likely have to scroll through pages and pages of images before manually picking out the photos that match what you're looking for.

From there, Flickr will show you photos that look similar. Now you can select the image that you want from the relevant choices that will be given.
