I’m going to explain how you can use a refined google image search that will help you find high resolution images that won’t print out blurry. You will also learn how to find pictures that match a certain color or that meet other specifications that may pertain to your particular needs, for example, you may need clip art instead of a photo.
First, you need to go to google.com and type something into the search field. In this case I’m going to type in “elephant.” Right underneath the search box, click the “images” tab so that only images results are displayed. It should look like screenshot 1 below. You will notice a small cog in the upper right hand corner. Click it and then select ‘advanced search’ from the drop down menu.
As you can see in screenshot 2 below, I’ve selected large for size, square for aspect ratio, photo for type of image, and blue for color. Screen shot 3 below will show you the results.
