  1. Return the Product Image in Offers in ..images/visualsearch

    In the response 'offers' the 'imageURL' points to the merchant's logo. It would be helpful to also point the the URL of the ProductImage.

  2. image search doesn't show image from wikipedia

    when searching for 'olm salamander (site:commons.wikimedia.org OR site:wikipedia.org)', filtered on images that can be used and shared commercially, the search results do not return the main image on the 'olm salamander' wikipedia page
    see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olm
    see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olm#/media/File:ProteusanguinusPostojnskaJamaSlovenija.jpg

    while searching for 'ProteusanguinusPostojnskaJamaSlovenija (site:commons.wikimedia.org OR site:wikipedia.org)' shows a smaller version of the said image. Image is 800x333, but images on results have with/height < 250.

  4. Thumbnail scaling

    It would be nice if the padding color could be specified when resizing thumbnails, including transparent.

  5. The Bing Image Search API Jupyter notebook fails...

    I'm using the same subscription key that has worked successfully in another session but getting an error flagged as :

    response.raiseforstatus()

    HTTPError Traceback (most recent call last)
    <ipython-input-4-c1121699867c> in <module>()

      4 params  = {&quot;q&quot;: search_term, &quot;license&quot;: &quot;public&quot;, &quot;imageType&quot;: &quot;photo&quot;}
    
    5 response = requests.get(search_url, headers=headers, params=params)

    ----> 6 response.raiseforstatus()

      7 search_results = response.json()
    

    /srv/venv/lib/python3.6/site-packages/requests/models.py in raiseforstatus(self)

    933 
    
    934 if http_error_msg:

  6. Bing Images Search Trending throws error

    The trending endpoint: https://dev.cognitive.microsoft.com/docs/services/56b43f0ccf5ff8098cef3808/operations/56b44b8ccf5ff81038d15ce0

    When I test it with the api console shows this:

    {
    "_type": "ErrorResponse",
    "instrumentation": {},
    "errors": [{

    &quot;code&quot;: &quot;DataSourceErrors&quot;,
    
    &quot;message&quot;: &quot;Please note the Data source and the Data source ErrorCode, then, for more information, refer to the HelpUrl.&quot;,
    &quot;parameter&quot;: &quot;Trending data is not present for your request&quot;

    }]
    }

    If there is a parameter missing, this page doesn't say it.

  7. Image Search API. Add searching for specified site when using SimilarImages / SimilarProducts

    Add searching for specified site when using SimilarImages / SimilarProducts. It is already possible to specify the site but it is not taken into account when providing a image to search for similar products.

    It could be a great thing to provide this in order to see what products a specific vendor has that match a specific image.
