If you are an avid internet user, then you may understand the necessity of searching images on the internet which matches the image that you have. This dream has now come true by the new feature named "Advanced image Search" introduced by Google.
This feature may also help people and some websites which need to find whether any image is original or copied somewhere from the internet.
Follow these simple steps to learn how to use the Google Image Search.
1. Go to images.Google.com
2. Now, if you want to search images with one that you already have, just drag the image and drop it on the search box.
The other way to do is to click on the small camera icon button inside the search box to the right side. Then choose upload an image option, click on browse and select the file which you want the search on the net. This will display all the images that are similar to the image that you gave.
3. You can also search images by using an image that is already on the internet. This can be done by clicking on the "Type image URL" button that appears when the camera icon is clicked.
4. There is also an advanced image search option by which you can specify the target image's color, size (in dimensions), file type (JPEG, GIF, PNG, etc..). You can even specify whether the image is a painting, a clip art or a drawing and also the quality of the image (in pixels) and the religion about which the picture is.
This type of search is actually called to be Reverse Image Search
since we search the links and other images using an image.Uses of Google Image Search:
The main advantages of the new Google image search feature are as follows:
1. If you have downloaded an image from the internet and if you have forgotten the source from which the image was downloaded, you can use this image search and find out the source website.
2. The second thing is to find out whether an image is original or it is already present on the web on some other websites.
Actually, this type of image search service was being provided by TinEye. Google did not invent this technology but Google didn't mention this TinEye during its presentation but instead said that this new feature will be like Google Goggles.
However, this new feature is really a significant one for the internet users.
