Tody i am going to share with you how to search by image on google 
Google released a new option called "Search By Image". You no longer need to begin the image search with a word or a phrase, but you can now begin with an actual image that you see on the web, or that you have on your computer, to search for similar images or to find out more information about that specific image.
There is more than one way that you can begin an image search with an image. This article will outline each approach separately below.

First way:-Searching with an image you have on your computer

Go to the Google Images website. This can be found at: images.google.com





Look in the search bar. On the right, you will see a little camera icon. Click on it.



Click on the "Upload image" tab that you will see appearing.





Choose a file from your computer and click "Open".





Wait for the image to upload. This may take a while, depending on file size and your internet speed.




Look at the page that Google will load with information about your image. It should contain thumbnails of images that are visually similar to your image, if not identical. It should also contain some websites that contain your image, and amongst these you should be able to find a page that will have more information about your image, if that was what you were after.




Second way:-Searching with an image URL you found on the web


Right click on the image that you see on the internet.

Choose the "Copy image URL" option that comes up.


Go to the Google Images website. This can be found at: http://images.google.com.

Click on the little camera icon in the search bar.

Paste the URL into the box that pops out. Wait for the page to load.

Look at the page that Google will load with information about your image. It should contain thumbnails of images that are visually similar to your image, if not identical. It should also contain some websites that contain your image, and amongst these you should be able to find a page that has more information about your image, if that was what you were after.
