Q. Can you tell me the best way to search for pictures on Google? I don’t want to seem stupid but someone told me that you can search Google for pictures. I’m trying to help my second grader find pictures for a school project I have no idea how to do that.
A. No such thing as a stupid question here at The Wonder of Tech! I can assure you that others are wondering the same thing.
To search for images on Google, go to google.com and type in your search term. When you get the results, click on “Images” on the left side bar or at the top toolbar that appears if you are logged in to a Google account such as Gmail or Google+.
After you have clicked on Images, you will see a grid of images and the left sidebar gives you choices to refine your search, such as time, type of photo, color, etc.
But if you want to refine your search even more, check out Google Advanced Image Search. This site allows you to search in many more ways, including by region, website, digital rights restrictions, size and type of image. Further refine your search by excluding terms you don’t want.
You can also specify how safe you want your search to be. When you’re helping your child search for images for a school project, be sure to check “Use strict filtering”.
For example, I found this image by searching “Beautiful Wallpapers” in Google Advanced Image Search:
