I've been using image search by copyright license on Bing - good to see Google have made their filter available, too.
Are using images found on Google in your posts? You NEED to read this.

Hi, having a good picture double's a post's visibility, there's no doubt about it. And people often search for images on Google and include it with their post content. Which is so wrong.

What are you saying, images that are found on Google are public anyway. Well, a picture's public visibility doesn't mean it can be re-used or edited. That can be considered as stealing images and may get you into trouble.

Here's a better way to use Google search to find images by knowing your usage rights: http://www.mervikhaums.com/my-diary/using-google-to-find-images-for-your-blog-posts-attention-please

I will not say this is a reliable way of finding images and I'm not doing it. But I'm sure many people are using Google image search to find pictures for their posts. Filtering your search by usage rights is definitely much better than using whatever you find on Google.

Google+ can of course be a bit of a pain to navigate. These are great tips to know - just have to try to remember them now...
Tip 8/50: Learn The Various Google+ Keyboard Shortcuts
Did you know you can streamline your Google Plus experience with these nifty short cuts?...

Note: These short cuts also work in Gmail!

To bring up the list of short cuts (usually a letter or character on the keyboard) simply press the '?' key. It may take a little while to memorise and master these, but doing so will make your G+ experience even more enjoyable and efficient!

A few highlights include:
j = next post
k = previous post
o = expand/collapse current post
n = next comment on current post
p = previous comment on current post
r = comment on current post
/ = search
? = open short cuts 

Thanks to Brian at +hongkiatcom Weblog for this one. See the original article here: http://bit.ly/1dxoN5F
