This week, you can find what you’re looking for more easily, as we introduced Google Images with sorting and made Google Instant available for even more people.

Sort by subject in Google Images
When you’re searching for an image, sometimes it can be hard to describe in words what you’re looking for. Now when that happens, you can use Google Images with sorting to find that image more easily.

Let’s say you’re searching for a picture of [flowers]. It’s such a broad topic that instead of browsing through all the different results, you can click “Sort by subject” in the left-hand panel and your image results will be organized into related categories. The categories help narrow down your search and pinpoint what you need, whether it’s roses, lilies or tulips.

Instant on iPad and in Italy, Spain and Germany
This week, more people will experience the speed of Google Instant as it rolls out over the next few days to everyone in Italy, Spain and Germany, whether you are signed in or not. Additionally, if you’re an iPad owner and searching on, you can now see search predictions and results as you type.
