Google Advanced Image Search and Drupalicon Halloween Fun

The Drupalicon, Drupal’s official logo, is a point of pride throughout the Drupal community. What better device than the Drupalicon itself could be used to communicate the value in using Google’s Advanced Image Search features? We created five Drupal twists to classic Halloween images to illustrate the breadth of Google Advanced Image Search’s database.

Located at, the advanced image search allows marketers to harness Google’s massive sea of search results, with some additional filters for things like image type, size or color. Perhaps the most important category though, for marketers who are looking for images to use as part of their own content, is the often overlooked “usage rights” filter. This is important for marketers who are looking to cover their bases when reposting, reusing or modifying existing content for a different purpose. Activating this filter will ensure that any images returned in the search will be ones that have been coded as being open source, or public domain, images.


Using images found through this method doesn’t guarantee that you’ll have full rights to any images you post or create from the search results, but it will certainly go a long way towards proving that you’ve done your due diligence by investigating content ownership properties. Enjoy these images of Drupalicon’s Halloween celebration!
