Google Image Searches

In: Graphic Design (general) Reference

1 Dec 2009

Several sites have noted Google’s new “Image Swirl” toy (FlowingData for example).  It’s fun to play with. An example search for “Santa” is below. I would add that the standard Google image search now has a number of really cool options: you can filter by image size, dominant color, and type of image (photo/clipart/drawing – those these categories aren’t always accurate). Filtering by image size, for example, can help exclude pay-for-image library thumbnails.
