Reverse image search

Reverse image search using google :

Do you know that you can use a picture as your search to find related images from around the web? There are several image search tools and the one that TOPs the list is Google.

With Google’s Search by Image tool, you no longer need to begin the image search with a word or a phrase. You can now begin with an actual image that you see on the web, or that you have on your computer, to search for similar images or to find out more information about that specific image. 

Google Image search can also be used as reverse image search engine. Search by image: Give it an image and it will tell you where the image appears on the web and shows you similar images as well.





When you search using an image, your search results may include:

  • Similar images
  • Sites that include the image
  • Other sizes of the image you searched for

Search using an image works best when the image is likely to show up in other places on the web. So you’ll get more results for famous landmarks than you will for personal images like your latest family photo.

* Browse the results of the image search :

After the image is uploaded the search results will be displayed. Google will attempt to determine the original creator of the image based on search results, and will also display images that are visually similar. This can be very useful for finding additional images for a set. Beneath the similar image results, you’ll see a list of pages that have the same image on them.
