The internet is full of images. We love them, and collect them with glee. Unfortunately, copyright infringement can result in painful, and expensive consequences.
But what do you do if you have found the perfect image for a blog post, and can’t remember where it came from? Use it and hope you don’t get caught? Not a great idea, especially when there is a dead easy way of finding that elusive provenance.
The technique is called ‘reverse image searching’ and came from Rich Meyer of Indies Unlimited. You can find Rich’s tutorial here, and I strongly recommend you check it out.
The image below is a screenshot of what I found when I tried the technique. The image I was searching for is one of my own so I expected Google to take a while. It took about 2 seconds. I just love learning cool new stuff like this. 🙂
P.S. This is my 300th official post!
