3.gifBrowse Through Search Results

When you do a search on Google Image Search, the search results are not the same as they are when you do a normal Google search. This task shows you how to browse through the results.

1s.gif Go to Google Image Search

Get to the Google Image Search by going to http://images.google.com or by starting at the Google home page (www.google.com) and clicking the Images link just above the search box.

2s.gif Type Your Search Terms

Google Image Search works like the normal Google search site, so type your search term or terms and press Enter or click Search Images.

3s.gif Browse the Results

The search results page looks different from the normal Google results. You see thumbnails of pictures that match your search. Beneath each picture is information about the image, including the filename; the resolution of the image in pixels; the size of the image in kilobytes; and the site on which the image is found.

4s.gif Sort Images by Size

After you’ve done your search, you can choose to show only those images of a certain size—small, medium, or large. From the Images Showing drop-down list box, select Large Images, Medium Images, or Small Images to specify which size images to display. Note that the image size in this context refers not to the size of the image in kilobytes, but to its resolution size.

5s.gif Search Within Your Results

If you get too many search results, you can fine-tune your search by searching within your results. Scroll to the bottom of the results screen, and click the Search within results link located underneath the search box. A new page appears. Type your new search term (don’t retype your original term), and you search within the original results.

6s.gif Browse to the Next Page

As you can with any Google search results page, you can browse to the next page of results by clicking the Next button, located in the navigation area at the very bottom of the results page. Go to a specific page of results by clicking the page number you want to view (click the 1 to return to the first page of results), or click the Back button to go backward through multiple pages of results.
