You know you can use Google to search for images, yes? Just click the “images” label at the top of your search results. But, did you know you can filter your search by color? It’s easy, and it’s fun.

For example, let’s say you search for “birds” and get this:

Google image search results for "birds"
Google image search results for “birds”

If I change my mind and want to see blue birds, I can click the “X” next to “red” to remove the red filter, and then click “blue,” like this:

Google image search results for "birds" restricted to blue
Google image search results for “birds” restricted to blue

*Sometimes the nice big buttons are there for you, and sometimes they aren’t. If they aren’t, click “Search Tools” and then “Color.”
