Google Search By Image

I’ve been scanning and sorting more of my Dad’s photos and I wanted to see if there were any photos of a taxi similar to his online.

This is where Google’s search by image function comes in handy.

Go to and click on the camera icon in the search box

Go to and click on the camera icon in the search box


Click on ‘upload an image’


Click on ‘choose file’



Click on the picture you want to upload and click on the ‘open’ button, in some programs it might be the ‘okay’ button


Wait while the picture uploads



Now Google will compare your picture with all the pictures it can find on the world wide web and will show some similar ones



You can also enter a word in the search box, I used Holden and it narrowed down the search and gave two websites about Holdens as well.


I think this was the closest match

I think this was the closest match.  You can also use this function to see if there are any copies of a photograph online.
