Google Image Search & Life Magazine

Google Image Search has always been one of the best ways to search for images on the Internet. You can search the way you would for any Google search, but get results as thumbnails of the images, allowing you to sort through results quickly. If you go to Advanced Image Search, you have more search options, such a limiting to just color or black & white photos, getting results in specific file formats, or to content such as news or faces.

Now there's even more reason to check out Google Image Search: Google is now hosting millions of photos from LIFE magazine. You can search or browse the collection by theme or decade. View some of the world's best known photographs from the collection now:
