Reverse Image Search is rather obscure yet intuitive way to Search for the source of a particular Image. Imagine, you’ve stumbled across some image, say, a location. Perhaps, you would like to know about it visit the place yourself, but there isn’t a penny information about it
So I’ve compiled a list of Top 5 Reverse Image Search Engines
Google Reverse Image Search
Google Images is not solely powered by Keyword Search. The little unknown fact is, it allows you to perform a Reverse Image Search. It analyzes and examines the data present in the image to match images hosted on the web
- Head over to Google Images.
- Click on the little camera icon to the extreme right of the input text area
- You can either Upload an image or Query image URL
- You can also drag the image onto the search bar to trigger Reverse image Search
TinyEye is one of the most renowned Reverse Image Search Engine. It claims to find duplicates of a specified image through it’s Unique Image Identification system.
Contrast to Google Image Search, TinyEye doesn’t use image data to track down the results.
How accurate is TinyEye
TinyEye is no where near true precision. I’ve Uploaded a default Windows XP Wallpaper, It failed to track down it’s details.
ByoSearch is another considerable tool for Reverse Image Search. It tracks down the duplicates of an image on the web through it’s image analysis algorithm
ByoSearch was recently acquired by TinyEye.
RevImg uses rather simple, unsophisticated techniques for Reverse Image Search. It considers few basic parameters of the image such as Size, Dimensions, Image Maps e.t.c
Fagan Finder describes a whole new outlook of Reverse Image Search. It lets you choose essential parameters like Search Engines, Photosharing Sites to check them out.
Out of all, Google Image Search was the only Reverse Image Search Engine to deliver promising results.
