@darkartsDA- Now if you could publish a tutorial on the Firefox add-on "Search Image on Google" and teach them to right-click that, we'll be on our way! I'm betting most of 'em use Internet Exploder and don't have a clue.

@BIB60 - LOL @ calling it Internet Exploder. I use Chrome myself. It's helped me make confirmations on some of these pics on WF. A good example is when there are multiple celebrities and someone asks who the other ones are in the pic, i can right-click on that image, select Search Google For This Image, and 75% of the time, it gives me a favorable result.

@FL585- I won't insult Chrome. Made that mistake once before and got into more trouble than you can imagine. But it's all good - 'context-sensitive' right click & search on Google Images. On Chrome, it's not even an add-on! For FireFox, there's that one and TinEye, but I like Google Image Search much better. 75%? I find about 90-95% unless it's a brand new image. I've noticed even with tagging here, it takes about 2-3 days for Google to find it. Don't know why. There's also a cool 'resurrect this page' add-on that lets you search all the archive/cache sites like Wayback Machine.

Here's your fishin' pole or Net:
Drag 'n' drop your image there and then sort out your catch. Just that simple. All it takes is TIME.
If you use Firefox, you can get add-ons called "Search Image on Google" and/or "TinEye" and simply right-click on any photo to do the search.
For awhile, I was posting this whenever I had to look one up for somebody, but then found it Image Search is *very weird* in Internet Exploder... can't seem to drag 'n' drop, and, well, "Friends don't let friends use IE."
