Mandy asks…

Google images?

I want to put a picture on google images of my horse i just made an acount so how would i put a picture on? thanks

admin answers:

Upload your image to a free image host, then submit the image url to Google. Make sure you name the file something relevant, because that’s how people will find your picture from their search.

You can’t upload a file to Google Images directly.

You can upload your photo/image to one of the following:

And then submit it to Google:

Laura asks…

How do you get google images to show images instead of white boxes?

When I search for images on google images or most other search engines, the results tend to show up as just white boxes or a broken symbol, I have google chrome and internet explorer but both just show the white boxes most of the time. please help.

admin answers:

have you got the latest versions of Java and Adobe programs
if not you can install them from
. there are other sites ~cnet~major geek for example
if this is not the answer
have you got your pop up blocker on ~this can also cause this problem
it may be a problem with a temp file or a web cookie
install and run it (then at least weekly)
it will clear all temp files and browser cookies left behind every time you browse the web (normal occurrence on all PC’s ~laptops)
if it does not solve the problem it will do no harm and will improve your PC performance and give you memory back.
Best i can suggest hope this helps

Susan asks…

How does Google images determine if a picture is for adults?

In google images, you can adjust the filter to display different levels offensive imagery (i.e. nudity, profanity, etc), but with the millions maybe billions of images online, how is it managed? Is there a google department in charge of surfing the internet to flag images? Or is it simply an algorithm of some sort?

If you’re just going to guess, how about you just don’t answer!

admin answers:

Google does have a user powered program that gets people to ‘tag’ random images for fun in their spare time. The more times an image is tagged with related keywords, the more confident Google can be that the image is what people are saying it is, and eventually those tags will be used to find that picture in the search results.

This is not the only way Google does it though. They do have computer algorithms that analyze and sort images very efficiently (it’s the only way possible, even a team of hundreds of users could never tag every image out there).

Google Images also has an option to search for images with faces. I believe this uses the same algorithm used in Google Street View to identify and blur faces. Some people comment on the fact that it’s pretty good at picking up faces even when they are not real, in one case the logo for KFC was blurred.

The algorithm for safe filtering is not perfect though… There are still things that can get through, especially if you use unusual search terms. I am studying Computer Science at University and in my opinion, the safe search option is done using a combination of algorithms and human intervention to help remove offending content that was not caught by the system automatically (as I noted earlier, this can only be done for a limited number of popular search terms though, so not everything gets filtered).

The algorithm most likely uses one of two methods (or both):
A) Identify the image as safe or not by determining whether the webpage it is hosted on is ‘safe’. This is most likely done by analyzing words on the page in a similar way to how Google indexes pages in the text search. This can’t be the only way since I know of websites that have completely unrelated text that don’t have their images show up in the ‘safe’ search.
B) Attempt to identify pornography by either measuring the ratio of skin-tone colours to non skin-tones (i.e. Try to determine how much ‘skin’ is showing) or using object recognition to identify ‘offending’ areas of the human body such as breasts or genitalia.

I should also mention that there is a report feature users can utilize to report offending images. This also helps filter out much of ‘unsafe’ images from popular search terms.

Your Questions About Google Translate

Sharon asks…

How to get Google Translate to show English meanings by hovering cursor over the Hindi words?

Previously on internet explorer I used to be able to see the English meanings by hovering the cursor over a Hindi word, without having to translate the entire page (which I’m not interested). Now I’m working on a different computer, and here it doesn’t do that anymore. I just can’t figure out what I need to do. It doesn’t happen even if I use the Google Chrome browser. Please advice.

admin answers:

You may have to install software for that..

If you know hindi then you might find this funny

Joseph asks…

How retarded would someone look if they translated a whole book using Google translate?

I know an author who wants to translate his writings into Spanish, French and Russian, but can’t afford a translator. He says he is going to use “Google Translator” which is free. He’s then going to publish the translations and try and sell them.

I told him he would appear to be extremely retarded in the translated language, but just how badly does the translation program work?

admin answers:

The translation program on google is horrible. Because it’s so generalized and offers so many languages I don’t think the people who programmed the thing realized that each language is different some languages that may have nouns for things may not use it in day to day talking or writing. Not only are the translations bad, for particular languages like korean for example the translator absolutely sucks! I have tried to use the translator for spanish when I was in high school and it worked out pretty fair but since I was kind of advanced after I ran it through the translator I saw all the mistakes that a person who doesn’t speak the language they are translating wouldn’t notice. All in all don’t use the google translator, the best solution I see here, if you’re not willing to pay for translation services, is to get a dictionary translate each word of the sentence, then find out for that language what is the order for the parts of a sentence, and put it together. But it’ll probably be very tedious but that’s the price you have to pay if you don’t want to pay the $!
