Google Chrome Beta Gets Search by Image Option

The Google “search by image” option allows you to perform reverse search on an image and discover all sorts of content that's related to that specific image. I have used this feature a couple of times to successfully find the source, author or photographer of certain images that I found on the Internet.

You can search the web by images by going to images.google.com, click the camera icon in the search box and enter an image URL for an image hosted on the web or upload an image from your computer. To make it even easier to search with images you encounter on the web, the Google Chrome team have also released extensions for Chrome and Firefox that allows users to search with any image on the web, simply by right-clicking on the image.

A recent update on the Chrome Beta channel has done away with the need for this extension.

Google Chrome 30 Beta now includes search by image in the UI of the browser. Simply right-click on an image and you will see the option to search for it within your default search provider i.e. Google.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
