Google’s Reverse Image Search now pops up in Chrome

Google’s Reverse Image Search now pops up in Chrome | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

"There are those times when a student wants to use and cite an image, but the original creator of the image and other important details are not exactly easy to identify.


Google’s reverse image search is a wonderful tool, but it’s a two-step process, requiring you to open Google and drag the image, or copy its URL into the search box with the little camera. (You could use the browser extension.)


Now, Google’s reverse image search feature is a bit more convenient."


Via Beth Dichter
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Another handy research short cut from Google.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 2, 2013 9:04 PM

Google has made it much easier to search for images now IF you are using Chrome as a browser. You can simply right-click on an image (or hold down control on a Mac) and wait for a box to come up and click search Google. Quick and easy....if you have the right browser!

When I teach online classes I ask students to upload an avitar to their Moodle profiles.  About half can do so successfully. Many are still sending a billion pixel 10x20 high def image.

Lots of steps to go through before using that copyrighted material. Maybe if the students had to look at this each time, they would just take your word for it and use Creative Commons licensed images to begin with!

Just been through it briefly and I've already downloaded 2 or 3 images.
