Limit Image Results to Color or Black and White Images

SUMMARY: Choose whether images returned from the Bing search engine should only be in color or black and white.

When searching for images with Microsoft's Bing search engine, the results may include a variety of color and black & white imagery. If you're only looking for one or the other, do the following:

1. Click "Images" underneath "Explore" from Bing's front page to search for images, or access Bing's image search directly via one of the following URLs:

* http://images.bing.com
* http://www.bing.com/images

2. Perform an image search. As an example, search for sushi.

3. On the left side of the results page, click the plus sign next to "COLOR" and click either "color" or "black & white".

The results page will change reflecting your choice.
