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.
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!
