I saw this print on Tumblr 3 days ago.
I followed the source link, which appeared to go to the artist’s web site, but from there I couldn’t find this particular print. His site seemed mostly about his music. And there were no images. The post had been reblogged and I set it free.
But I haven’t stopped thinking about it.
So today, I got serious about finding where this piece of art came from and how to get a hold of it.
How many times have you been in the same spot – you see something you LOOOVE but you can’t find where it came from?
Can I show you something?
Google has a bitchin way you can find stuff that was originally posted on Tumblr, Pinterest or even blogs. So if you find something like this, that you love, but you can’t find the source, use this Google trick.
How to Find the Source of Images From Tumblr, Pinterest, StumbleUpon and Blogs
STEP 1: Go to Google image search.
STEP 2: Click the little camera in the search box:
STEP 3: Paste the URL of the image you want to find the original of.
To get the right URL to paste in here, you have to either being on a page that only features this one, singular image you’re looking for or you’ll need the actual URL to the image that’ll end in .jpg, .gif, .jpeg, etc. You can get this by right clicking the image and selecting “Copy image URL,” like this:
You can also sale an image and then upload it, but usually I only need the paste URL function.
Once you’ve put in the image URL or uploaded the image, click “Search.”
STEP 4: Check your results!
Google will tell you the URL’s where you can find that EXACT image, and below that it’ll show you similar images.
I was able to go through the links at the top, with the exact image matches, and find the print that’s been nagging me is available from TinyShowcase and will set me back $75. Wishlisted!
If you use Pinterest, Tumblr, StumbleUpon or check out a lot of blogs I KNOW you’ve run into this problem before and I hope this gives you a new way to find them!
And I’m hoping my husband reads this blog… Christmas hint!
