Hi kyrathaba, thanks for the link. I'm interested in similar image related apps.

I knew about Gazopa and TinEye but haven't used them in some time.

When I last checked, TinEye performed the best for me (ie. most accurate) but I suppose individual results will vary. In the past these online image tools haven't been very reliable, but they continue to improve each year.

I will check some of the other tools mentioned in the comments. Thanks again. :)

At the turn of the century, this was a basic feature in Alta Vista image search. It was extremely powerful. They switched it off after a few years, I still don't understand why.
