How to search GOOGLE by Image


Search by Image

Now you can explore the web in an entirely new way by beginning your Google search with an image. Learn more about images on the web and your own photos.

Search by image allows you to do a reverse image search and discover all sorts of content that’s related to a specific image. For example, search using a picture of your favorite band and see search results that might include similar images, webpages about the band, and even sites that include the same picture.

Four ways to search by image

Drag and drop

Drag and drop an image from the web or your computer into the search box on images.google.com.

Upload an image

On images.google.com, click the camera icon, then select “Upload an image.” Select the image you want to use to start your search.

Copy and paste the URL for an image

Found an image on the web you’re curious about? Right-click the image to copy the URL. Onimages.google.com, click the camera icon, and “Paste image URL”.

Right-click an image on the web

To search by image even faster,download the Chrome extension or theFirefox extension. With the extension installed, simply right-click an image on the web to search Google with that image.

How to search

There are a few ways to search by image:

  • Visit images.google.com, or any Images results page, and click the camera icon camera icon in the search box. Enter an image URL for an image hosted on the web or upload an image from your computer.

  • Download a browser extension for Google Chrome or Firefox to search with any image on the web, simply by right-clicking on the image.Tip: After downloading your desired browser extension, you can change the extension setting so that the camera icon appears when you hover over an image. Then you will be able to simply click on the camera icon and search by the image.

Search by image works best when the content is likely to show up in other places on the web. For this reason, you’ll likely get more relevant results for famous landmarks or paintings than you will for more personal images like your toddler’s latest finger painting.

The results page

When you search by image, your results will look different than your normal Images or Web results page. The biggest difference is that your results can include non-image results like webpages that seem relevant to the image that you searched for.

Google’s use of user-submitted images and URLs

When you search by image, any images that you upload and any URLs that you submit will be stored by Google. Google uses those images and URLs solely to provide and improve our products and services.

XP – 16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem – Error S32EVNT1.DLL

Received the following when running a DOS app:

16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem

A quick search turned up a couple of Symantec technical articles:

We need to pay particular attention to the instructions as they say to delete the data for the indicated key, not delete the key itself!

We navigated to the required registry location:

Registry: HKLMSystemCurentControlSetControlVirtualDeviceDrivers

Double click on the VDD key and delete the data contained therein. Note that in our case no zeros were left as the Symantec article indicated there may be. Also, if we placed the zeros in the key, the error came back when we started the DOS program.

This is what the key looks like after removing the data:

Registry: Blank VDD Key
