The Many Colors & Options of GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH

Have you noticed the colorful changes to Google Image Search? Now when you do a search, you’ll see bars or buttons of colors across the top. These are clickable filters that you can select to get more precise search results. (Source: SearchEngineLand.com)

Here is an example:  See the image below AND click here for the actual search.

Google Image Search with color filters

Take a second look at the example above. Another set of very useful features you probably have never used lie beneath the button ‘Search tools’. Options include:

  • Size selection
  • Color selection
  • Type (Face, Photo, Clip Art, Line Drawing or Animated)
  • Time (date which image was posted OR found)
  • Usage rights
  • More tools (currently includes ‘show size’)

One more thing…did you know that you do a ‘reverse image search’ by uploading a picture. To be successful in finding a similar image, it has to be a basic picture without a lot of background and details. It isn’t easy to find a match but give it a try – what have you got to lose!
