Tips for Searching Images
If the URLs above don’t give you what you need, these image-searching tips can help you find other images:
* If you need the images to be free, add “free” as part of your search query. Why look at images you have to pay for if you know that’s not what you want? This can cut your searching time by more than half.
* Indicate if you want a specific subject within the free clip art images. For example, enter “free vintage Santa clip art” if that’s what you’re looking for. That will help the search engine give you more targeted results and keep you from having to pick through images you know you won’t use.
* Use an image search feature. Each major search engine has an image search feature, and using them will exclude even more pages you don’t need to see. And you can usually see the images before you even have to click through, so this is probably the most useful time-saving tip of all.
