Bing Images Search by Color

June 13, 2018

Bing Images Search by Color

Color as a solid swatch may be an absolute value such as red, blue, green, yellow, etc. but to take a picture and then decide a color for that picture is an objective task! Can you just allot one color for a picture of a garden that shows a blue sky, green meadows, and multi-colored flowers? Probably not. Or maybe, you can just choose green as a dominant color in that case! Whatever choice you make, there will be times when you need a picture that has a predominant red value or a primary grey value, or a foremost value of some other color. Fortunately, Bing’s Image Search has some great filters that let you percolate your search results to any color!

Learn how to search images in Bing by using the built in color filters.

Viewing Sections in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

If you have a presentation with a large Section, containing many slides, then you may find that this one Section makes it difficult to see all the other remaining Sections. This is because these many slides cover up so much screen real estate making it difficult for you to see other stuff, such as slides in other Sections. And if you want to drag a slide from one Section to another, you may be at a loss to comprehend what you will end up with.

Insert Pictures in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

In a presentation, both pictures and words are important, and they both play complementary roles. If you had to choose just one of them; then seeing is a much more important part of presenting. Presentations, by their very nature, are meant to be seen since they evoke actions such as project, display, or broadcast; and all of these actions represent visual media. Text and speaking are important too, but you can be more effectively heard and remembered if your content includes both text and pictures.

Make Your Meetings Productive: Ask These 5 Questions

When business people hear “Let’s schedule a meeting,” they react the same as they would when they hear “Let’s schedule a root canal.” Meetings have long been—and continue to be—the Bermuda Triangle of business. In 2004, Patrick Lencioni offered his advice to make meetings more productive in his bestselling book, Death by Meeting. This week, conflict-resolution mediator Priya Parker will publish her advice in The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters. With all due respect to these accomplished authors, let me offer five additional solutions to that chronic problem in the form of rhetorical questions that each leader, as well as each attendee, must be able to answer before and after a meeting—but especially during.
