To start from the beginning, we must say that downloading anything using the internet or surfing the net of course needs a Web-Browser or simply a Browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc.).NOTE: The following instructions are just examples, you may try otherwise also.
If you are using Windows platform as the Operating System(OS), so it must have Internet Explorer(IE) pre-installed. Now double-click on
icon to get started. (if not, you may try installing other browsers, and then follow the instructions below. I presume, you have any kind of browser installed, and if I am wrong, please reply with a comment and I will tell you how to install a browser) :D
** I am using IE 9 here to tell you the process, and you may not find all the options if you use older IE versions like 6,7 or 8 ** IE 10 has all these features stated or depicted here
The Internet Explorer (or other browser) will open with it's defined settings, either showing it's Homepage or a New Tab page. Now press Ctrl+T to open a New tab and in the address bar
to go to Google.**The address bar image is given at the bottom of this page.**
On the upper-left corner, click on images to go to Google images. In the Blank Field, type anything you wish, and press enter.
For example, I've entered "Niagara Falls at Night", and this is the result.
You can also refine the result using the links on the left side such as, Large, Medium or Black and White etc.
To download the picture you want, right-click on that picture and select "Open in New Tab". This will open the image in a new tab, where on the right side, click on Full size image to get the maximum resolution of the picture. Now in that newly opened tab, right-click anywhere on that picture and select "Save Picture/image as", which will open a new window asking where to save the picture. Choose any location you want (say, Desktop) and click on Save.
The Address bar looks like the following:
In other ways, you can also grab pictures. According to my opinion, the best way is to go to www.google.com/
(don't go to images) and type anything (like, Butterfly pictures
) and this will give you several results leading to different websites. Go to any site from the list you like, and save the pictures. (To go to any site, simply click on the link or right-click over it and select 'open in a new tab' to open that page in a new tab)NOTE: As different browsers use different settings and search engines, the surfing experience and the search results may vary a lot when different browsers are used. And again, the above instructions are for the most basic purposes, and these processes can be done in many other different ways.
Hope this helps, Mrityunjay
