Did you know you can do a REVERSE Google Image search?
Ever since I read this post, I've tried to be extra diligent about crediting every photo I publish on the blog. (A link back to Pinterest is not an acceptable photo credit, ladies.)
But. It's much easier to find great images on the internet than it is to figure out who shot them.
Say you come upon an photo on Pinterest and the photographer isn't credited....
And when you click through you just hit the home page of a blog or (worse) a Tumblr page where THE PHOTOGRAPHER ISN'T CREDITED.
Drag the image straight off Pinterest or Tumblr or wherever you found it and drop it into Google Images.
This takes a little jiggering, but once you get the hang of it, it's very satisfying. Check out the results:
Note: The above instructions are for Mac users. On a PC, I suspect you would need to first download the image, then upload it to Google Images by clicking the tiny camera icon
and choosing the "Upload an image" feature.
Will someone test this out for me?
