Image Search Engines

Google Images is a quick and easy way to find lots of images from web pages across the globe. But it only searches web content that it can find -- many images are actually hidden in databases or galleries. The quality of images - size, resolution, description, usage rights - also varies considerably on the open web. Use Google, but don't rely on it for all image searches.

  • Google Image Search  Tip: Use advanced search or facets to limit by image size, images within a domain/site (e.g. site: unlv.edu), and usage rights.
  • Google  Use Google's web search to find hidden image collections. Search example:  KEYWORD ("image archive" OR "image gallery" OR "image collection" OR "image database")
  • PicSearch
  • Bing
