Google reverse image search...
« on: July 22, 2013, 03:52:00 PM »
I've seen this mentioned twice, now, but I'm rather daft, so I don't know how to do this.

Anyone care to give me a pointer or two?

I think it's when you copy the Image link provided in a thread.

And then paste it into the search bar on Google and hit search.

That' what I do when I want to know who is who in an image.

There's also a site called 'Tin Eye' (I always have to look it up), where you can paste in the URL of an image (right-click on the image and select 'Copy Image Location') and it will search the Interwebs for other instances of that image.

I have found that Tin Eye is not as reliable as it once was when I was a /b/rother.

Click the camera next to the search button, paste URL, cats and dogs living together, mass hysteria.

I've noticed on my Android Tablet  2 10.1, there is no camera button on either the regular android browser or the vastly preferred Mozilla Firefox (or at least not the ones on my tablet). I have seen images that contain this camera button, but they differ from the pixels that show on my screen.

I use Firefox almost exclusively and when I need to search and image I right click on the image, copy image location, right click in the Google search field and click paste and search option.  If I get a screen that says search by image I click that link and go from there.

I don't get it on my phone, either. You can try setting your user agent to desktop.

right, thanks for the heads up BeMi!
I've been looking for a female 40+ holding a firearm so that I could use it for the commanding officer of the elite unit of my Goin' Commando story which I have yet to get off the ground

ATM I'm looking at:
Leanne Crow (omg rax, but only in her thirties... aww)
Vicky Vette (omg rax and 48 years old, but so far no pictures featuring firearms on prominent display or anything resembling slutty BDU... lighter )
Various women that Christa McGinn is helping me out with, which I'm totally swampt over with indecision.

I don't have any particular thing for older women, but suffice to say that a "lifer" that's like 2 steps down from a General ought to be considerably older than the minimum age... conservatively I'm looking at a minimum of 2 years between rank up (and I don't mean Private>PFC>Corporal=4 years, I mean for the specific ranks given by the system) would mean that absolute minimum age would be 24, making most models OK, but the younger ones would be a bit of a stretch on the realism and I'm already stretching that with the premise.

That being said, if I can use any tool, particularly reverse image search, to find another similar image closer to what I'm looking for, great!

As for the other I'll try the BeMi's suggestion first...

As stated in my thread there is a thread started by Caeli on this (found stickied at the top of the Finders Seekers forum):

Image Resources & Tips - How to Find Avatars, Inspirations, and Character Images

And My post regarding Google Image Search Specifically with picture step by step instructions.

Hope that helps!
