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 website

This is Google Image Search

… drag an image onto the search bar…

Dragging onto Google Image Search

… upload the image…

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

SERPs results for Google Image Search

… and visually similar images.

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

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?
