How to Reverse Image Search, the Right Way

If you want to know how to perform a reverse image search, you’ll first need to know the limitations of an image search:

  • A reverse photo lookup will almost never be able to find an image on the web of a person based on a different image of the same person.

  • Doing this image search will either give you no results or an enormous number of irrelevant results.

Speaking of enormous results, reverse image search engines need to be crawling the web to get results. Almost all image search services do not have the web crawling capabilities needed to provide a positive image search result.


Google has the biggest web image crawling ability.
