    Check out Google Image Swirl. I think with a little work this will be a good tool for brainstorming. It works like a mind map of sorts. Kind of like the Visual Thesaurus but with images obviously.

    I think it's supposed to narrow down image searching via similar images

    I have been using that a lot since they started the beta project of it for exactly that...brainstorming. It uses the images similarity to build a hierarchy and searches its metadata for likeness' the more you keep clicking through the more it will narrow your search. Its surprisingly fast too.

    Microsoft has something even better... lemme see if i can find it

    Found it!
    I shouldn't say better... I should say higher on the "impressive" scale.
