Google Image Search... Image Search?

I discovered a nifty feature in Google Image Search last night. If you go to Google Image Search…

Google Image Search will find that image posted other places online…

… and visually similar images.

5gis similar 300x197 Google Image Search... Image Search?

Google Image Search “Similar Images”

Then you can even search within the results to narrow them down further.

6gis filter 300x257 Google Image Search... Image Search?

Filter Google Image Search’s Similar Images

I don’t know how long this has been around, but seems like a very cool feature!

Possible use cases:

  • You have a picture, but can’t remember where you downloaded it from.
  • Looking for people who are copying your artwork and reposting without permission.
  • Looking for different pictures of a place without a well known name.

What would you use this for?
