Colin Meek, who runs Journalism.co.uk’s advanced research skills training course, recently posted two tutorials on his site which look at how to use Google Images as a research tool. According to Meek, “using image search properly can help you focus your research in unexpected ways especially when your research subject has a strong visual element”.
See the first tutorial here, which looks at the “basic and advanced options that demonstrate the potential of images as a research tool”. The second tutorial addresses “the ‘search-by-image’ reverse image search that takes things to a different level”.
