Reverse image search is special kind of search where you don’t need to provide keywords and instead provides an image and the search engine looks for images of similar kind. Reverse Image lookup is not yet very famous as most people are not even aware of this kind of search options available. Also they find other ways to search images easier than this kind of search. I have compiled a list of 6 best Reverse Image Search engines used for search using images, take a look ;

1. TinEye

TinEye is a reverse image search engine. It finds out where an image came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or if there is a higher resolution version. This website also provides a Firefox add-on, which adds a right-click menu item that allows you to search for an image to find out where it came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or to find higher resolution versions.

2. Byo Image Search

It seems that this search is based on the colour palette uniformity primarily but does include theme based algorithm. They normally use a search technology called Piximilar visual. It analyses numerous image attributes for example color, shape, texture, luminosity, complexity etc. This search algorithm called piximilar visual, which analysis images for color, texture, complexity,region and its appearance.

The results shown by the Google Image search is totally different in comparison with normal Google.com results. Also browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox are also available which speed up your search.

Traditional image search engine systems permit you to find images beginning with a text, RevIMG works the opposite way: start the search from an image and returns you as result a listing of links to web pages where the image or similar ones are contained.
