I generally search for images using Google Image Search and after any search, I select the minimum size as 640x480 from the left pane of the page.

Is there any way to set a minimum size for Google Image Search by default? I looked at my search options in my Google account but couldn't find anything related.


There doesn't seem to be any way to save Google Image search preferences, even when logged in to Google, which is a bit strange. I would have thought this would be something that a lot of people would use.

Anyway, you could probably create a little piece of JavaScript and add to your toolbar as a bookmarklet to do this.

Something like this would work:

javascript:(function() {  
var searchTerm = prompt("Enter search term:","");
searchTerm = escape(searchTerm);
var url = "http://www.google.com/search?q=" + searchTerm + "&tbm=isch&hl=en&cr=&safe=images&orq=dog&tbs=isz:lt,islt:vga&biw=1280&bih=";
window.location.href = url;
  • Yeah, it's really strange. I thought there was a native way to do this. Your solution seems to be the only way to go. Thanks. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Sep 19 '11 at 16:17
