Search by Image

New this week - Google Image Search - you can now search by uploading an image.  Go here, and click on the 'camera' icon.

To test it I uploaded this picture of a piece of street art in East London.  I named the picture Pic1, so that Google couldn't get any info from the name.

This was the result.

Clearly there are some issues with the 'visually similar images' it's turning up at the bottom, but the results at the top...  Very, very impressive!

(Although I hate to think what uses people will have found for this within a couple of days)
