Advanced Google Searching: Google Tools


Use Google images to locate pictures and clip art from all over the web!  There are even ways to drag and drop images into the search bar to find similar images. You can limit to colors, sizes, and dates.

Hint: To try to avoid copyright violations, I usually include Wikimedia Commons in my search: earth Wikimedia commons.  Don’t know that what you find is guaranteed copyright free, but you can usually find the photo credit to include. You can also search in Flickr for Creative Commons images.
