Quick Tip: Image Reverse Search

While browsing the web I came across this helpful mallard meme.  It shares a little known keyboard shortcut for Google Chrome. When using Chrome as your browser, simultaneously right-click with your mouse and press "S". Chrome will perform a reverse image search in a new tab, which means Google is searching for the image and information about it.

Google search allows for multiple ways to search using an image.
  • Keyboard shortcut (with cursor over the image, simultaneously press S and right-click on mouse)
  • Search by Image extension, adds option to right-click menu
  • Drag and drop image into Google Search box
  • Upload image into Google Image Search box
