Video: Use Google Image Search to Find Quality Images for Your Book

Nan Barnes

Finding high quality illustrations for your book can be a real challenge. Many of the images on the internet are low resolution which will not work well for book printing. This video, the first on our new Stories To Tell Books YouTube Channel, will show you how to solve the problem.

The tutorial takes you through the process of using Google Image Search to locate better, higher resolution images to replace low-quality photos in your collection. Nancy Barnes explains how to locate better, higher resolution duplicates of your images to meet the requirements for commercial book printing. These methods work for all photo searches in Google Images, but they are especially helpful for people who wish to upgrade an existing photo.
Learn how to use advanced settings to locate images by size, by type, and for free use, as well as sorting them by usage rights, so that you can publish the photos in your commercial book without violating copyrights.
