Google Search by Image
I am currently "enrolled" in the Power Searching with Google course. I have to say, I believe that even the most experienced Google searcher would learn a new trick or two with this course. Today I learned about Search by Image. Almost everyone knows that you can click on "Image" in Google and find images. What I learned today is that Google can help you identify images. Amazing? I think so. If you go to the Google Images screen you can drag over pictures from your desktop into the Google Search box. A new box then appears, search by image, and tells you to "drop image here". Google then runs a search giving you information about your image. Try it, it is fun. If you would like additional information on the Power Searching with Google course, you can read the article on the Google Blog.
