But do you know, Google offer us the feature to carry out search by image.
Yes , you can use a picture as your search to find related images from around the web. For example, if you search using a picture of your favorite band, you can find similar images, websites about the band, and even sites that include the same picture. Google will give you everything related to that image .
Search by 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.
There are four ways to carry out the image search at Google –
1) Drag and drop – Drag and drop an image from the web or your computer into the search box on images.google.com.
2) Upload an image – On images.google.com, click the camera icon, then select “Upload an image.” Select the image you want to use to start your search.
3) Copy and paste the URL for an image – Found an image on the web you’re curious about? Right-click the image to copy the URL. On images.google.com, click the camera icon, and “Paste image URL”.
4) Right-click an image on the web – To search by image even faster, download the Chrome extension or the Firefox extension. With the extension installed, simply right-click an image on the web to search Google with that image.
Let me illustrate this with an example. Say, I want to search the logo of “Techie Gossip”. So, go to www.techiegossip.com and right click on image header and copy the image location.
Now, open images.google.com and click on the camera icon as shown below .
Enter the copied URL as shown below and hit “Search By Image”.
And the result is in front of you .:)
