    When performing an image search the choices are, Any size, Large, Medium, Icon. Is there a way to designate a size greater than X? Google removed this option some time back.

    Any chance you have a cheat sheet with all of these techniques? Would be beneficial to have it handy until they become routine for me.

Tons of untested methods on the web that don't work. But adding edu, I found out about one of the newest experimental techniques--dry ice. I was skeptical as so many sites told me to sprinkle dandruff that was collected on the full moon..... :)
