4 Free Services for Reversed Image Search

You create blog post, and you found the images, helping you to illustrate the topic. Image is exactly what you need, however, it has low resolution and quality. There is an easy way to find the same image on the Web, and hopefully the resolution will be acceptable for your needs.

You can use one of the two services, allowing you load the image and search Internet for other locations, pointing at the same image.

1. Google Search by Image

Google service is the first destination you can go to perform the task. You can use a picture as your search to find related images from around the web. For example, if you search using a picture of your favorite band, you can find similar images, websites about the band, and sites that include the same picture.

Search by image works best when the image is likely to show up in other places on the web. So you’ll get more results for famous landmarks than you will for personal images like your latest family photo.

There are three operational options for your search:
* Option 1: Load an image from your computer.
* Option 2: Use an image from a website.
* Option 3: Right-click an image on a website (Chrome and Firefox)


You can search by image on the following browsers:
* Chrome 5+
* Internet Explorer 9+
* Safari 5+
* Firefox 4+

2. TinEye

TinEye is a reverse image search engine, similar to the Google service. You can submit an image to TinEye to find out where it came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or to find higher resolution versions. It is free to use for non-commercial searching.

3. Macroglossa

MACROGLOSSA is a search engine based on the comparison of images. The operation is simple: Have you taken a picture of something you could not identify? Maybe you’re not sure what animal is contained in the image? In order to learn more about the content of your image, you can simply upload the image file to MACROGLOSSA and begin your search. 

4. ImageRaider

A new service, where you add your photo or image catalogue and get list of the websites, where these images are used. Site gives results of high quality, but the service is a bit slower than competitors.

As you understand, these services can be used for other practical tasks, for example, looking for the location by loaded picture, or checking out who is using your copyrighted images without your permission.
