Do a Google search using descriptive words (keywords) for the item, like pink umbrella. In the menu along the top of the results page, click Images. Et voilą!

Right click the image and copy the image location. Then go to google and click "images". There will be an icon of a camera to the right in the search bar. Click the camera icon.

Then paste the URL of the image location. It will find similar images on the web.

Sometimes you need to click the image before you can get the image location. The URL you want should end in ".jpg", ".png" ".gif" or possibly some other image type.

^THIS^ make me smile vit! Not only smile, but chuckle out loud. I see you have the same problem that Himself accuses me of having. People like us don't speak "tech", we speak "culinary". IMO it's not a bad language to be fluent in.

Let me try again
  1. At the top of your browser window, you should see a box that contains this: www.discusscooking.com/forums/something else-doesn't matter what
  2. Click anywhere in the box; the text should become highlighted.
  3. Type "google.com" (without the quote marks) and press Enter to go to the Google home page. What you type will replace the highlighted text.
  4. In the box in the middle of the Google home page, type the keywords describing the item for which you want to find an image - for example, pink umbrella; press Enter or click Google Search
  5. The next page you'll see is called the results page. Find the word Images in the menu bar at the top and click it.
  6. Now, Google will display images that are indexed to those words. That generally means that the content on the page includes the words, or the author of the page tagged the image with those words.

Hope this helps.

Yay! Gotta say, I really dislike that phrase "dumb it down." I prefer to think of it as tailoring the teaching method to the student I used to teach basic computer skills in adult education night school in our town. I learned that different people learn differently, no matter what the subject. My dad was a teacher and DH is/was a teacher (he's an administrator now, but still does some teaching). I have great respect for them. I couldn't do it every day with children. At least adults want to be there.

Anyway, glad you found some cool boots!
