Image Type: Choose whether your want the image to be a photo, a stock image, animated, etc.
Dominant Color: Choose which color you’d like the image to be (e.g. blue, red, green).
Image Size: Choose how large you’d like the image to be.
Usage Rights: Choose whether you’d like to find images from the Public Domain, etc.
File Type: Choose whether you’d like a jpg, png, or gif.
Safe Search: Choose whether to turn SafeSearch on or off.

Tips

Use buttons. Rather than having a column calculate directly, use a button with the modifyrows() formula. This way, you can manually change the imageURL if you want.
