Google is an amazing tool for searching online.

Sometimes visual thinkers might feel a bit left out with all the text that's on show, so here is how to search using a photo. Just head to images.google.com and click the camera icon within the search bar. You can paste in the URL of an image you want to search for, or upload an image from your computer.

Google will then find pages that are related to your searched image. One of our favourite things to do is to search for a picture of a cake for some recipe results. Google will also return results of images that are identical, or visually similar to the image you searched with, which is also a great way to track down if someone else is uploading your photos on the web.
