using GIFT in a commercial project should be fine. If you modify it these modifications should be made available under GNU license as well. These are basically the constraints of the GNU license.

The quality of GIFT depends very much on the images. GIFT uses global features and features in fixed regions, this means that if you compare tissue it should be fine, whereas for objects it might not work this well. You would need to check the performance for your types of images, I think.

There are PHP interfaces, so the integration should be very easy.

GIFT scales all images to 256x256 before it extracts features, so image size is not important. For up to 150'000 images there should also be no speed or size problem.

Hi all,

I am new to GIFT. I am thinking about using GIFT to build a visual
search engine for my commercial shopping web site. I would like to ask
the following questions:

1. Since GIFT is covered by GNU public license. Using it to provide
visual search for my commercial web site is allowable and do not need to
pay any royalty fees. Is this correct?

2. My visual search is mainly on fashion products like clothes, shoes,
bags etc. Is GIFT a good candidate for doing this kind of visual search?
What's the recognition rate level for this kind of search?

3. My site is built using PHP + mysql. Is that possible to integrate
GIFT with PHP? How to do it? any documentations?

4. Is there any limitations for the size of the indexes of the images?
or say, can i make GIFT to be scalable?

Thanks a lot
