Google Preferences

Directly below the Advanced Image Search link is another link called Preferences. This contains options which should be reviewed at least once. It's likely a user might want to select other ways of conducting the search.

The first section is Interface Language, where you may indicate other languages for Google to communicate tips or messages to you.

Below that is an option for selecting the Search Language to be used. Queries would be limited to pages written in the designated language. Thirty-six languages are offered.

The next option is to select a filter on the query. Strict filtering excludes text and images with explicit content. Moderate filters cull only explicit images. Or query without a filter could be selected.

Number of Results allows the user to dictate how many search results will appear per page, up to 100. Results Window requests that search results be displayed in a new browser window.

The options which are selected may be saved so that they over-ride the default settings.

Next let's look at the language option a bit more.
