Tutorial: how to find image sources

Intro: As an artist it is annoying to see my work shared without credit. I don’t mind people sharing it, but giving credit should be a basic courtesy. Thus I strongly encourage people who share artwork online to include credits and link backs to the source.
For some reason many people claim that don’t know how to do this. Well, Google has three easy systems to find the source. If you’re too lazy to do this then don’t share the artwork!

1. If you’re on Google Chrome explorer right click the image and find “Search Google for Image”

 

2. Right click, see: “Copy image address” and go to Google, in Google images there is option to search by images, paste the image address into the search field and see the results.

Paste image address into here and hit search.

 

3. Same as above but instead save the image onto your system and search by upload.

Below is an example of searching an image from my own profile using Google Chrome.

The top four results are link back to my blog and credit info.

That’s how easy it is! So no excuses or “Artist unknown” laziness!
