My 12 year old heard me complaining the other night about a broken link on Pinterest.
"Just search the image, Mom."
"I can't do that, all I have is an image."
"Sure you can - give me that laptop."
And he proceeded to show me the most amazing thing - how to find the original source of an image with a broken link.
Oh. my. goodness. How did I not know this?
So here it is-
Right click on the image you want to search. Click on "Copy image URL"
Go to https://www.google.com/ and click on Images towards the top left.
Click on the little camera.
Paste the image URL. Click Search by Image.
Step 5:Check out the results!
You may have to do a little detective work at this point to get to the original source, but it sure is better than no link at all! Hope you can use this handy little tip:)
