We all know google is the most popular search engine in the world far ahead of the likes of Yahoo, Bing! and co. It’s not surprising that it finds answers to almost all questions, we aren’t dwelling on how it does that but just to talk about one of the areas of Google brilliancy which is Images search.

Google Images is a search service owned by Google that allows users to search the World Wide Web for image content. It was introduced on July 12, 2001 due to a demand for pictures of Jennifer Lopez’s green Versace dress that the regular Google search couldn’t handle as that then.
