Image Search

Is it possible to do a search via a search engine on an image? i.e. by actually uploading the image itself.

So what would you be searching for??

reply to Technotiger I could be searching for any kind of reference to a specific image.

If it is a known image, with a name, you could try Google. I don't think uploading the image would make any difference.

I just want to know if it possible to upload an image onto a search engine and do a search on it.

I think it's very unlikely

these are specialised programs $$$$.

law-enforcement, art dealers. self-contained.

you're not likely to upload an image of a fossil and get a pterosaurus in response. :-)
