Search for similar images on Google

Great tip for finding original images.

Props for this one go to my friend James, who showed me how to do this.

Ever found an image on a website but it’s a low resolution version or has a watermark?

It’s actually pretty easy to find different versions of the same image via Google Image Search:

1)  Right click the image in question and copy the URL to you clipboard.

2) Go to Google Image Search and click on the camera icon:

3) Paste the URL into the search field and hit the search button.

You should then be presented with a page of results based upon the original image you’ve provided.

Rather than the results being based on the image name, they’re based upon a bunch of factors such as image size, file size, colour and composition.  Usually you’ll find other versions of the original source image within the first few pages.
