Google Custom Search API for image search project

Ok so through much struggle I was finally able to successfully retrieve JSON data from google’s custom search API. However for each query, I’m only getting back maybe 4 or 5 image results. For those who used this API for the project or others, how did you configure your custom search engine? It seems like the only important information needed is the “sites to search”. For that I just put “”. I used the correct cx and user key, is there something else I’m missing? Thanks in advance.

Nevermind, was able to solve it by viewing a previous post about the subject.
