More About Sub-image Searching

Last week I wrote a post about using the search strategy of sub-image searching to identify the meaning of the lettering on a tea set that a friend of mine had purchased at a flea market. It's a strategy that I learned many years ago from Dan Russell and was reminded about when I heard him speak at the TLA conference ten days ago. Today, on his blog Dan Russell has a detailed explanation of using that sub-image search strategy in combination with other strategies to solve a challenge called What's That Logo? Read his blog post here or watch his video for a demonstration and explanation.

One of the important take-aways from What's That Logo? for students is the reminder that Google is not the only search engine. As you can read in his blog post, Dan recommended using Bing Image Search and Yandex as part of the process to solve the search challenge.

Use Bing to Find Public Domain Images

Since I started using them earlier this year Pixabay and Every Stock Photo have been my go-to resources for public domain images. This morning I learned from Tony Vincent that Bing has an option for finding public domain images. To access this setting go to Bing Images, enter your search term, then use the "license" menu to select public domain images. I've included a screenshot of the settings below.

Bing image search would probably be my third choice of places for students to search for public domain images after Pixabay and Every Stock Photo. It's my third choice because, like Google Images, the "related" images and search suggestions might not always be appropriate for classrooms.
