I don’t know how many people knows just how much freaking easier it’s gotten to research stuff(art in this case) over the years, i really appreciate it when someone gives me a heads up when they see my art floating around on other pages, on other sites… Sometimes bold enough to even try and crop out my signature, but i am fortunate enough to have more nice people spread the word by linking back to my DeviantArt(or one of my other sites) than the aforementioned Art Croppers.
ANYWHO! Lets say you made a pretty popular thingy, oh look, all i had to do was put in the key words and i found an entry:D
Turns out this site was cool enough to link directly back^-^
Regardless, Sometimes it’s not that easy, sometimes you absolutely need to know where a picture originates from and no mater how many notes or comments you sift through, you just can’t find that sweet sweet information-_- Well this might help!! start by right clicking the picture and hit [view image]
Now that the image is all alone in the alleyway, you snap that baby’s address up top.
Then you slamm-a-jam that junk in the google macheen.
Enter that shiz in, and then click on the “Search By Image” link.
And finally, reap the reward of knowledge!!!*0*
So there ya go, if ya didn’t know before, now you do!^o^ This is an amazing way to find out where your art has been(fun for looking up all the horribly mean commenters the internet has to offer), or how to find out who made that random picture that you absolutely love(heck, i found a book series i kinda want to read now because i was looking for the artist who made the cover art and ended up learning about the author and the book as well).
But don’t be sad if it doesn’t work, i’ve seen it pull up different information from the same picture because it was from two different urls, and a few urls won’t even activate the “search by image” link so it’s not 100% reliable.
Hope this helps you lovelies out there, if you like the A.T. fan-art i made, and want to see more.. well you know how to find that stuff now;P
