Image-hosting services and camera apps can select images for highlighting or as the best shot from a burst of shots based on criteria such as lighting conditions, blur (or lack thereof), whether people in the image are smiling, whether their eyes are open, etc. However, the selection of images is not based on user preferences, e.g., that indicate whether a user likes or dislikes an image. This disclosure describes techniques that enable a user to specify examples of favorite images. With user permission, examples provided by the user are used to surface similar images, e.g., images that match the user’s preferences.
