Changes to Google Image Search

You can now filter Google Images by size, content type, and color. Size choices are small (up to about 50x50), medium (up to about 500x500), large (up to about 1200x1200) and extra large. Nice for when I'm trying to find a high-res image for something, or alternatively a smaller one that'll load fast.

For content, you can filter for faces, line drawings, news content, clip art, and photographic images. Those filters aren't perfect, but still pretty good.

For color, the choices are red, orange, yellow, green, teal, blue, purple, white, grey, black, and brown.

I think these filters will turn out to be really useful for finding extactly the images you want. Well done, Overlords of the Web!
