Reverse image search.
REVERSE IMAGE SEARCH
Using the Chrome browser, right click an image and choose Search Google for Image. If there is a right click disabling, google likely can’t see the image and you will need to get the actual image url (explained later in this post).
See Paula McManus’s journal about a very useful search tool that also relies on a google reverse image search: http://www.redbubble.com/people/paulamcmanus/jo...
The tool: http://jarred.github.com/src-img/ I use this, it’s pretty effective, and saves time.
Google Images: Search terms and names.
