View similar, your fast lane to the content you need

Have you ever stumbled upon an image that almost has everything you’re looking for? Maybe it’s the color, the lighting, the style…there’s definitely something that separates it from the image you have in your mind. However, it still looks like a great starting point.

With our feature, View Similar, you can quickly find images similar to the one that caught your attention, helping you find the perfect design easily. Forget about scrolling through pages and pages of results —this tool saves you time when looking for vectors, photos, AI images, and icons.

How can I use View similar?

One great thing about View similar is that you don’t even have to open the image you’re interested in and start finding similar designs. Simply follow these steps

  • Enter the asset you’re looking for in the search bar
  • Take a look through the results
  • Hover over the image you like
  • Click on the View similar icon (bottom left of each thumbnail)

You will be automatically redirected to a results page with similar designs—choose the one that matches the idea in your head or go back to your previous search.

When should I use View similar?

The View similar feature is really useful when you find a photo that’s almost right for your project but not quite perfect due to its composition or some other small detail. Let’s say you’re working on a flyer with limited space for an image. With View similar, you can scroll through similar images with different composition styles while maintaining the essence of the image that first captivated you.

It can also be helpful when trying to keep visual consistency across your project’s icons but can’t seem to find an icon style that suits the picture in your head.
