Maybe you’ve inherited a website and been asked to check your company owns the rights to the images used in the blog posts.

Nobody knows who first sourced them.

What do you do?

Here’s a tip: use Google Reverse Image Search

Step #1

Go to this url:

Step #2 – Upload/Paste

Click on the little camera icon. Then upload the image to Google, or paste in the URL. It searches through the internet for the same pixel combinations that make up that image and displays what it finds..

Step #3 – Search Results

The search results list every single place the image has been used, and whether it’s an image from a stock library, or details of the original photographer.

Take a look at Google’s detailed instructions.
