How to find the Source of an Image in 3 easy steps.

I have a huge pet peeve of uploading images that aren’t mine and giving correct image credits to each one of them.  I am always struggling to get to the source of an image since i guess, it’s the right thing to do.  And, i discovered the perfect way to solve this problem. I am sure most of you might already know this trick, but for those who don’t… Here it is…

Step 1: 

Open Google Image Search

Step 2: 

    If the image is on your computer, click the little camera icon and choose upload photo.
    If the image is online, click the camera icon and paste the direct url or address of the image.
  • You can also drag the image into the search box

Step 3: 

You’ll see pages that include the image you searched for, one of these is likely to be the owner and the original source.
You may also see a lot of Pinterest links and a list of visually similar images.

This is an example of one of the images i have uploaded from my computer, and have successfully found it on my blog post.
I hope this trick helps you give correct image credits for all your blog posts.
