Previously, a method and tool for identifying image with high similarity was mentioned. It made use of some extensive Flickr galleries and did not rely on user-added tags.

A new company uses the same principle to market clothing.
"The site, operated by San Mateo, Calif.-based Riya, an expert in visual computing, allows customers to click on images of celebrities wearing accessories or on pictures of handbags, jewelry, shoes and watches. In a few weeks, the site will add clothing, according to Riya's CEO and co-founder Munjal Shah. Eventually, customers will be able to download their own images onto the site."
