    I do not know why people are amazed by GG search. Although you can set a lot of parameters (size, colour, etc.), if you concentrate on how succesful your search is in regards to the search term, well, google is far from a good image search engine…
    Many times I search for pictures show a particular product, or it’s review photo. For this I use search terms containing the article number or/and exact name, and although I do use the search operators, I often end up on other search engines, due to the disastrous results of Google. – Disappointing.
    Google lists a lot of “nearly result” pictures after their real hits, so they can provide like 100 pictures in their list, although real hits from these can be only 5-6 peaces. – I hate it.
    Many times there are a lot of aliexpress hits even amongst the first 3 hits. (Not that I ever want to visit the aliexpress site or anything other “great fake products” site.) – More than annoying.
