I mean really. How can I possibly come up with a clever title for that one? The clever post will have to make up for it. If you’re anything like me, 80% of your searching on the internet is images. I’m a visual person, and I need to see see see things! I came upon a little nugget of information the other day that changed my Google-searching life. No joke. There’s nothing funny about images. Unless the image is this–
Ok. Onto my point. Basically, a Google image search can do more than you might expect. The kitchen below has been on my drool list for almost a year. I’m in love with so many things about it, so it’ll be my “model” for this post.
The first thing you do is right click on a photo and click copy image url.
Next, open a new window for a Google search. Click on images in the top left corner.
There will be a little camera in the search bar (sorry no pic of it). Click on it. It will give you the option to paste the image URL (which is what I did) or you can even upload it from your computer. Then click search!Allllllllll of this information will come up about that picture. It’ll show you different sizes of the picture, (often) an original source, and different pages that include this picture.
The best part is that when you click on visually similar images, you’ll see a gigantosaurus selection of pictures that are well…visually similar. So if you like that room (outfit, recipe, tropical island…), you will see tons and tons of pictures that are nearly the same. GAH! Needless to say, I’m obsessed. I’ve been uploading a ton of my “favorite room” pictures and pulling up similar pictures to be inspired by. Too cool, right?
There’s my tip o’ the day, folks. Enjoy!
