Internet Web image finder.

Overview

Beholder ... The original dedicated desktop client for image search is back, completely rewritten and better than ever, so if you're really interested in finding and exploring images on the web, let Beholder do the searching for you.

Beholder queries Web image search engines and quickly arranges their results along with their source pages, URLs and other link details. Using Beholder's contact sheet interface, you can easily navigate through hundreds of images, verifying whether they are still available on the Web and downloading them for inspection or archival purposes. And thanks to Beholder's Web site scanning engine, you can extend your searches and extract related images from any Web page, Web directory or RSS feed.

What's new in Beholder

Version 3.2:
  • Beholder has been discontinued and as a result, the product is now freeware.

This looks pretty cool, but could really use tabbed windows instead of opening new ones.

As the current engine was a bit outdated (and only functions somewhat reliably with AllTheWeb), we've completely rewritten Beholder from scratch. The first public release of this new version (Beholder 3.0a1) is now available. Though it is not yet feature complete, it does once again fully support Google image search, and will eventually include the oft-requested "sort by size" feature (probably in 3.0a2). When the final version of Beholder 3.0 is released, it will be a free upgrade for all current registered users, and will remain at its $19.95 price for new users. Thanks for your support.

It's a cool tool, but the Prism Zoom scaler makes the pictures look awful(!). Can it be because I'm using a flat screen? Or is the scaler method supposed to be like this? It would be nice with an option that could disable it.

This is cool, lightning-fast software! I clocked it and it's easily as fast as Google. Images open in about two seconds and save just as fast. Several advantages over Google are that the thumbnails list relevant information and you save a lot of time over Google by being able to quickly open images in a pop-up window. Just don't try to adjust the sharpness slider without clicking off the "auto" option or the program crashes unmercifully. One feature I'd like to see in Beholder, in Google, Sherlock, or whatever, is a solid "safe search" preference for those of us with kids.

Needless use of an installer makes download overly complicated. Interface is a mess - defaults to view which does not show results, dragging window to resize causes clipping of interface elements. Enlarged versions of images bare little resemblance to original images. Using the websites the app interfaces with is easier and more pleasant than using the app - don't bother downloading.

Doesn't display the size/dimensions of the images as google image search does. This is critical & surprising to be absent.

Pretty nice. Fast too. I wish you would have named the 'sets' what the search engine was instead of 1 2 and 3. Also this zoom thing doesn't look that impressive. What is it? And does it have to install off an installer? Thats kinda scary.
