Image Search Engines - Imagery

I can not believe how quickly the prototype search engine "Imagery" found images on my research topic. Almost every image was relevant. I could limit the images by adding additional terms in the search box.

Per the complicated question I have been working on as an information specialist searching for particular images, containing certain words, Imagery is another database that I am adding to my "to search list" for Rosa S. Raskin & Associates, LLC.

The search engine is user friendly with useful features. It quickly produced 100 relevant images on my topic. I especially like the option of clicking on the thumbnail to increase the size of the image so that I could read a label on a product. The enlarged image appears on the bottom of the screen so that I may compare the enlarged image with the search results (thumbprints) on the screen.
