Image search url syntax

I am trying to add a command in MapleRead so that when a word is highlighted, I can select the command which I have named Image strangely enough, and have a search carried out in google images.

Can someone tell me what the code should be?

I looked at the code for the Maps command comgooglemaps://?q=(text} and made it comgoogleimages://?q={text}, a very good stab in the start if I do so say myself, and needless to say, hmmm, it doesn't work.

Thanks in advance.

I think the Maps command assumes that the Google Maps app is installed on the same iOS device.

To do a Google text search, try
https://www.google.com/search?q={text}

To do a Google image search, try
https://www.google.com/search?q={text}&tbm=isch

Thank you so much! The second option is what I’ve used and it works ver well. Thanks again.

What if I wanted to show a place name in Google Earth on my iPad. What would the code be for that, please?

For example, London is highlighted.
