Montage-a-Google

This site is so neat that I played with it for an hour before realizing that I had to write up a review on it. It was so easy to get lost in gathering new searches and seeing what it came up with. What exactly is Montage-a-Google you ask?

In its creator’s terms, “Montage-a-google is a simple web-based app that uses Google’s image search to generate a large gridded montage of images based on keywords (search terms) entered by the user.”

So scroll down to the black button that says “Launch Program”. This opens the program and after it loads you just type in a word that you want it to search for—like puppies, and then when it finds 20 images you can click “Create Montage” and see what your results came up with.

Mine came up like this:

And with each image you can click on it and see its original source. So you can go get more of the same pictures or check out what else they have to offer of what you are searching for.

This is a really neat program—you could do so much with it.

Now if you liked using the image search you’ll probably want to follow the link to the Guess-a-Google—the game where you see if you can guess the term used to search for the images I got seven out of ten. It’s a lot of fun. And some of them are so puzzling!

All in all this is a great site! I hope you get as lost in it as I did.
