We have gathered some techniques and tips to help you search for good quality images on Google. In the recent year, Google has provided more useful techniques to use in the search bar, providing more available information from their search results.
We’d love to hear what you have to say about these tips so comment below the article for us to have a look and answer any questions you have for us.
Searching for an image by its visual similarities
Finding top quality images Looking for a (vector image)
Logos that are editable in Adobe Illustrator Software

What we like to call, “Drag and Drop” is a quick and easy way to search for a specific image. By going to the “Google Images” Search bar, select the camera icon and upload the image you want to use.
OR just by dragging your image into the bar and drop it in.
Top Tip for Top quality Images
Finding it difficult to get a good quality image off the internet? Having to trace the image you want back to its original source can be time consuming.
We have found an easy tip to use, ensuring your search results are only of good quality images so you can find the one you want.
After searching for your image, under the search bar you will find a selection of optional filters to use:
Click on “Tools” and another toolbar will appear below.
Then, click on the “Size” tab and select the “Large” option, a tick should then appear next to it. This helpful tip will then refine your search to find the bigger and better quality images.
Looking for a Logo
Searching for a Logo with a good enough quality to edit and adjust in Adobe Software? Editing and resizing an already-made-logo you downloaded from the internet without losing the quality of the image sounds more difficult than it really is.
Fortunately for you, we have developed a little tip to help you, that we use when we are stuck trying to find a vector image (vector files are perfect for creating graphics that you want to resize or edit).
Start off by entering into the Google Search bar what Logo you would like.
At the end of your search, by simply adding “pdf” refines the results to vector files which you can save, open and edit in Illustrator/Photoshop.
