Is there anyway to configure Google Chrome's Omnibox to search directly for Images instead of default Web search?

Relatively any possibilities for making news search and rest types?

  1. Go to Google images
  2. Right-click on the search field and click Add search engine
    A new window will popup

    enter image description here

  3. Choose your desired keyword i.e. image
  4. Don't change the URL parameter
  5. Click in your omnibar and type image test

This way your omnibar searches for images and displays Googles image search page

Note: The described method can be used for allmost every search engine i.e. Google News

Yeap; Can be useful for almost any search box. – Jones Jan 20 '13 at 9:46
You, sir, are a genius. Thank you @nixda, and I love the fact that your answer from 2013 is still relevant in late 2015 :) – dootzky Dec 2 '15 at 17:01

Ultimately the same thing, but if you right click in most search engine fields you want to use in the omnibox you can select "Add as Search Engine" from the context menu.
