Identify an unknown item using a photo of it and google images
Thought I would post this up as I have seen a couple threads wondering what a specific item is from a picture. I also had cause to use this feature just last week. To be warned, this is not going to find the exact item link, it will take some digging but it can most definitely narrow down the web sites you browse through to find it. I also noticed that the camera in the search bar does not show up in opera. I had to use internet explorer for it to show. I don't know if this will work in any other browsers. I don't believe it will work if you take a photo yourself and upload it as the engine most likely relies on similarities between the photo and existing images to find a match.
Go to google images.
Click on the camera in the search bar.
Provide link to photo or upload photo.
This helped me to find a style of boots I have spent a year looking for when I came across an image of a similar boot last week. Thanks to this I now own them.
Hope this can help some of you!!
