I stumbled on this by accident while searching for images on Goggle. My issue is I usually see an image I like, save it to my computer and later on forget why I saved it, where I found it, etc. I discovered Google has an Advanced Search option. http://www.google.com/advanced_image_search Pretty nice, eh? So I did some reading about using their image search and found you can actually search for an image by using that image! Craziness! Who would have thought.
Below are some screen shots and directions.
|Go to Google.com and click on the Images tab along the top. The Google Images page will include a camera icon within|
the search bar at the far right.
|After you click on the camera icon, this box will appear. You can either paste the image directly into the field (Ctrl V) or |
you can upload an image you've saved on your computer.
|I decided to search for an image I saved. I know I copied the pic from Funky Junk Interiors (awesome blog!!!) but for |
purposes of this exercise, we'll pretend I can't remember.
|A window will pop open for you to search for the image you've saved, in this case a large # 2 Donna created. This one |
was out on my desktop. Click 'Open' once you've selected the correct image
|You should see it searching (or the little spinning wheel as some call it) .....|
|And voila! There's the image along with the correct website! MAGIC!|
Here was the information Google Support provided. I did some more research to see if I was absolutely nuts or if other people were struggling with this too. One of my favorite sites, The Graphics Fairy actually has a blog on how to find Pinterest images too. Hope this helps!
