[Quick Tip] Quick­ly Locate Black and White Images in Google and Bing Image Search

Colors ThumbnailA bit of contrast makes life better. Just like it does in colors. But that’s not to say that black and white isn’t fascinating. It has its own charm.

Besides, I have experienced that black and white pictures grab more attention and help us concentrate on the picture details rather than the colors. So, whenever I need few of those pictures I head over to my regular search engines- Google and Bing. There is nothing extraordinary that I have to do or look for.

I can simply perform my search as I always do (image search). Then, on Google, I point to the left pane and scroll down to the section of colors. Black and white is the option that must be selected. If you need this on a regular basis you can set your preferences using advanced search.

Google Black White

On Bing, I navigate to the left pane again, expand the section for color and check the option reading Black & white.

Bing Black White

When we select these options our result of images (for our query string) gets filtered to show the ones that are black and white. Quick and easy!

Bonus Tip: You may also try TinEye Labs’ Multicolor Search which provides Flickr-based image search and an amazing experience.
