How to do Reverse Search Using Image in Google?

How many times it has happened with you that you have found an image on the web and would like to know where the image came from or would like to know more about the image or simply find similar images. Recently while looking at some images of a historical event, I wanted to get more of the same, similar and related images. However, there was no straightforward way of doing it until I came across Reverse Search image. Did you know, you could simply search for information that may be related to a particular image directly from Google? This will give you the source of the image as well as the context it has been used on several websites.

Reverse Search Google

To do this, all you need to do is reach for the image you want to perform reverse search on an image, select it and click on S with Right click from your mouse. We got this to work just on Chrome and within the Google Image section on a Windows PC. It was rather strange that it did not work on a Mac and kept on popping up the right click menu.

However, to find a work around this, we did use an extension on Chrome which can be downloaded from here. Once you have this extension enabled, all you need to do is go to any image and right click it and from there select the option of ‘Search Google with this Image’. This will perform a reverse search for you and give you the results in a new tab not hampering your current session.
