Use Google Images Search Syntax For Searching Images More Accurately
The google images search syntax helps you find images more accurately to your keywords.
This can be helpful when you are searching for most appropriate images for your projects or websites.
Following are the syntax supported by Google images :
Finds keywords in the page title. This is an excellent way to narrow down search results.
Finds pictures of a particular type: "JPEG, GIF, or PNG".
Note that searching for filetype:jpg and filetype:jpeg will get you different results because the filtering is based on file extension, not some deeper understanding of the file type.
Example: filetype:jpg blogspot
As with any regular Google search, inurl: finds the search term in the URL.
The results for this one can be confusing.
For example, you may search for inurl:blogspot and get the following URL as part of the search result:
Hey, where's the blogspot? Because Google indexes the graphic name as part of the URL, it's probably there. If the page above includes a graphic named blogspot.jpg, that's what Google is finding when you search for inurl:blogspot. It's finding the blogspot in the name of the picture, not in the URL itself.
As with any other Google web search, site: restricts your results to a specified host or domain. Don't use this to restrict results to a certain host unless you're really sure what's there. Instead, use it to restrict results to certain domains.
Example: site:blogspot.com (Note* Don't use the "www." part in this syntax).
