If you’re like me, you might find a bunch of great images on Tumblr of stuff that is actually real and you can probably buy, but there is no link to get such awesome find. That drove me insane for quite a while because there was no easy way to find where this image came from and the only thing that I did was describe the image for google. This worked for me only a few times and it took me forever to actually find the source. Well, there’s good news! There’s a super easy way to find that image with Google Images.
I came across this last year (or earlier) back when it was introduced but I never found any good purpose to it and I forgot about it, but just a couple of minutes ago I saw this awesome thing on Tumblr that I actually need an I’ll use that as my example.
I was looking through my dashboard and I saw this awesome tent-looking thing for a bed that would give you privacy if you share your room with someone else. I share it with my sister and I like my privacy, so this tent is perfect for me. Here’s the picture I saw:
As you can see it is pretty neat, but the image is pretty small and you can’t even read the letters on the top, so there’s not clue from where did it came from. Here’s when Google images comes to the rescue:
I hope this helps you out and if you have any questions just send me an ask.
Have a great day!
One of the things that I just can’t like is reading. I suffer anytime I have reading as homework and many of those times I just skip it, so this is no different when I am in front of a computer. All of you have had to read those painful agreements to service and sometimes you just don’t read them at all and you click “accept”. What I’ve found is that those are one of the very few things I do read on the internet since I don’t want to get in trouble, but I still hate it. I really wish I could do something that would free me from that, and there is! keyboard shortcuts. Yes, shortcuts.
For this task, there is two shortcuts that could make this process a lot faster: ctrl+f OR F3. What these two shortcuts do is pop up a search box in your browser (Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome) and highlight the word you are looking for. The way how I use this with agreements of service is by writing key words like “license” and “copyright” and then going to their location and reading the paragraph in where they are. That saves me from getting sued.
Now this shortcut also saves time when you are doing research. For example: You need to turn in an essay about X person that did X thing. You go on Google and you search for this person’s name and also about what he/she did. You get results back and you find something that has the key words on the mini description in bold, but once you enter the webpage you get this really long page and you realize it will take you a long time to find where your info is located. Well not anymore! You simply click F3 or ctrl+f and you type your words and now they are highlighted plus you get an index on your scroll bar that tells you where to move.
I must admit that I was not a big keyboard person, but that has changed. I found the ctrl+f as an accident and so I found F3.
Now I want to talk about other shortcut that I recently discovered: ctrl+a number. What this shortcut does depends on what browser you are using.
In Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer the shortcut changes you from one tab to another. (for example, you click ctrl+2 and it takes you to you tab #2)
In Safari for Windows, it links you to your top site (for example, you click ctrl+3 and it takes you to your top site #3)
I’m sorry for making this post so long, but I wanted to give you as much info as I could. I really hope these tips help you as much as they help me.
