Hi everyone,

First, a question. Does anyone know if the Google Custom Search API supports google image search?

I'm making a game with Flash. I want to let my users type any word they want, like "elephant", and be returned a thumbnail picture of an elephant. I figure the only way to do this is by having Flash make a google image search, and using the results of that search to get an image, then making a thumbnail version of that. I know Google Custom Search can do that with web site urls, and even has limited support for FLash and non-javascript environments. But I'm not sure about image searches. Does anyone have any tips on this? What methods to use? I've searched through the documentation some, but it went a little over my head.

Thanks,

Bo

(The irony of this question is actually pretty funny, if you don't mind me saying so ;-)
