All you have to do is go to Google and type in your search keywords, and your image results get displayed within a matter of milliseconds. But what if you have an image already, and you want to search all the sources on the internet that have used that image or ones similar to it? Doesn’t it happen sometimes that there is an object or an image you come across, maybe offline or online, that you’re sure you have seen earlier, but are not able to remember exactly what or where you’ve seen it?
