Using the Pictures Channel

It's been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Pictures convey so much information. For example, the imprint of Neil Armstrong's boot print on the moon is more than just a dusty footprint, especially for those old enough to remember the event. And photographs mean different things to different people. A photograph of Paris might just be another boring travel image to one person, while to another it invokes memories of a exotic vacation, and desires to return to the City of Lights. We're constantly searching for that one perfect image that says exactly what we want, and Sherlock gives us an easy way to find it.

Use the Pictures Channel

Open the Applications folder, and then double-click the Sherlock icon.

Click the Pictures button.

Type the words or phrase you want to use to search the Internet.

Click the Search button.

The images appear in the Sherlock window.

If necessary, click the Search button again to add more pictures to the list.

Continue clicking the Search button until the images are loaded.

Double-click on an image, to open the Web site that contains the original photo, clipart, or graphic.

Follow the site instructions for using the image.

IMPORTANT When you download an image from the Internet, you typically have to pay a fee for the use of the photo. Failure to do so constitutes a copyright infringement. Most stock photo companies are using watermark technology to track unauthorized use of their images.

Quit Sherlock.
