Yottalook Images Improvements

I know we at Yottalook have been rather quiet this past month in terms of blog entries, but it is because we have been extremely busy working on new features. While many of the features are still being tested internally, I wanted share with you some of the new features that have been added this past month. This particular blog entry will describe some of the new features added to the Images engine.

First, we have expanded the exclusion options to exclude not only "Charts/Graphs" but also "Histo" for histology as this has been a feature that has been requested by some of the users.

Second, now the users have two options of displaying their results. You will notice the new set of options below the search box called "Individual Fig" and "Grouped Fig". The first option is selected by default. The second option "Grouped Fig" is a new option when selected returns not one but all the images from a particular article. This option is useful if you are looking for a series of images from a particular article so that you don't have to click on individual result links. Below is a graphical representation of how the returned results would differ. You can see this by clicking on the "What's this?" link next to the options. This feature is also in response to various users' request for a more grouped results. We hope you will find these features useful and potentially speed your browsing. If you have any suggestions, please provide your feedback.
