Here is a very cool tutorial I have just discovered – How to search similar photos and images via Google. TinEye was my favorite reverse image search engine; the only problem is their limited database and resources to crawl the internet, thus the results are limited to a handful of images only.
Apparently Google has the same reverse search feature, it is not well known to the public. Watch the video tutorial embedded below on how to search for similar images via Google Images. Enjoy. This feature is useful for those:
- Searching for the original photo
- Finding the source of an image / photo
- Verifying if the photo is manipulated or Photoshopped
- Searching for who is using your copyrighted images without permission
Important – You can only drag an image to the ‘Images’ page, not the ‘Search’ page of Google.
