I Heart Google Image Search

Google Image search results with "blue" "yellow" and "clip art" filters applied

It’s true, it’s slightly embarrassing how much time I spend on Google Image search. From looking up inspiration for color palettes and design concepts to resourcing for retouching and photo illustrations even just grabbing silhouettes to trace, I am on Google Images more than I care to admit. Which is why today is such an exciting day!

Google has refined search options on their image search queries. Before where you could just choose image size you can now narrow down search results by the dominant color in the image, or by image type (ie. photo vs. clip art illustration) Pretty good stuff!

P.S. I also noticed a new search function where you can sort through hits as they relate to a chronological timeline.
