about the google search resolutions

Sep 4, 2013 at 11:04 PM
with the google search it seems i have to set a fixed resolution. i think it would be much more convenient if we could choose to enter a minimum resolution instead, or no resolution restrictions at all.

I can kind of do this, but I am constrained by the search functionality built into Google Images. Google Images supports searching for an exact size, or you can pick from a pre-defined list of sizes and aspect ratios. If you want to search for images greater then a given size then you can only choose from a pick list, you can't enter your own values.

To see the list of options I can provide (not just for sizes, but other items also):
Run a Google Images search and open the "Search Tools" sub menu. There is a section for sizes, colors, etc... Let me know if having this more limited option would be OK.

that would be great. the google search options may be limited to some people, but it would work for me.

google really need to update those options. they are all 4:3 sizes while almost everyone is using 16:9 these day. anyway, thanks for your time!
