    Very convinient way to find related images specially for content writter who need exact images about what they write. Myself being a blooger I often find myself searching deep inside the search engine to find a quality image, usually that takes a lot of time.This tool will certianly make the job a lot easier. Any similar plugin for google image search will be appriciated.
