Good info, although the Google API site screenshots are out of date now. (They're still pretty accurate though.)

Also, it would be helpful to mention that the new API key takes a few minutes to activate once it's been created.

Is there a way to remove the watermark from the image? Attached is the desktop image I am seeing. Note the watermark in the top right corner showing the number of images found.

It looks like this watermark is embedded into your image, there isn't any way for DisplayFusion to remove it, sorry.
