Techie Tuesday: How to source an image you love!

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Pinterest, tumblr, weheartit, blogger; we've all come across these site's and the amazing image's that overflow from them. The only problem? You can rarely find a source to that pretty dress or that breathtaking scenery that'd you'd love to visit if you got the chance, only if you knew where it was! Or that inspiring photography or art piece that lingered with you all day because of it's beauty that you'd like to see more of.
 I have a solution!

1. Find an image you want to dig up any information you can find about it

A photo I found on tumblr, incorrectly sourced

2. Open Google images tab

Ensure that it is the correct page otherwise this won't work. Right click the link above.

3. Drag and drop the image from one tab to the search box of the 'Google image's' tab that you just opened.

The search box changes to this larger box when it recognises that an image is above it

4. Wait and it will find out where to find the image, what other site's used the image and a selection of similar images, cool huh?!

The result's!

It's quite reliable but generally won't work on image's that have been altered or photoshopped etc. However if you see a random photo and you just have no clue where it's from, you will now be one step closer!

I hope you enjoyed this Techie Tuesday!
