    If there are any points/flaws that I missed and will make you think that this won't work 100% of the time,
    please free to mention them.

    But so far it works perfectly for me so I thought to share :)

    1) Visit google.
    2) Go to "images".
    3) Next to the search bar there's a camera icon. Click it.
    4) Upload the image URL you want to check. Or just upload an image from your computer.


    Cheers!

    Or install the google image search addon, right click on the picture and search it.
    But there are tons of images on internet that are not on Google image so it will not work 100%

    Haha actually I don't know if there is a similar thread on BHW regarding this, I just said that from my point of view as I know the trick for quite some time already.

    Keep sharing, although its very simple trick still its something that not everyone knows and sometimes it can be very useful :)

    Reverse image search is my best defence against ebay scammers selling stuff scraped from other websites. One of my favourite little tools

    Exactly the same thought.

    And I needed an album cover for the E.P. of my band,
    maybe I'll find something nice ^^
