Use Google Image search to quickly find related information and photos

Google image search can be quiet powerful and deliver a wealth of information regarding photos you might want to research. Sometime when you go to Google image search and type in your search for a specific image. You might not really get what your looking for. If you however have one photo on your PC or Mobile Device this could be quiet helpful. If you use the same picture in Google's image search you can find related photos from the same batch. Information about where that photo was taken and the image size. You can then further drill down to other photos from that collection. If you do not know who is in the picture or the place it was taken out in. Google will deliver all this information if the photos has been fairly popular on the internet. If the photo is not popular, you can at least find the site where the photo might be hosted.
