Google Images

What are Google Images?

Google Images is a great web-based product by Google for searching for images online. it performs the same basic querying and result-fetching functions as Google’s flagship search engine, it’s better understood as a specialized offshoot.

Google has come a long way from just being a search engine., The company has built up a very impressive array of tools, and while some of them are highly specialized, there are a few worth knowing no matter what you use the web for. It is just one of these tools, so if you don’t know what it is, or aren’t sure just how much it can do, here’s all you need to know.

While Google Search produces web pages with text-based content by scanning text-based content directly, They return image media based on entered keywords, so its process looks a little different under the hood. The main factor in determining what images populate your results page is how closely search terms match image filenames. This, by itself, isn’t usually enough, so it also relies on contextual information based on the text on the same page as an image.

How Do I Access?

There are three simple ways to access :

  1. Go to and select Images in the upper-right corner.
  2. Go to, which is a more direct way to get to Google Images.
  3. Input the search terms for your image search into the default Google search and, on the results page, select Images.
