How do You Find the Original Source of an Image?

What do you do when you have an awesome image that you downloaded long ago, but are unable to remember the website you found it on, or you just want to find more information about a picture? It’s easier than you think.

One of the easiest ways to do this is using ‘reverse image search’. Google has a service in place for this. Go to their image search page at http://images.google.com/ and click on the camera button. Upload the image and see the search results for your image. You may need to browse through the search results depending on the number of results returned and likeness to the image you uploaded. Use of the search options might also be necessary.

Another great reverse image search service is TinEye. More often than not, it will yield different results than those you might receive from Google. It is always good to have multiple options in case one of your options turns up dry. TinEye is also available as a browser plugin (FF, Chorme, Opera, IE, Safari), thus the search is available with 1 right click to the photo. [via howtogeek]
