    tineye, google search, and (only for smart phones) google goggles.

    you can download extensions of these services, to search by image from anywhere without visiting these sites. just right click and search.

    google image search extension :

    tineye :

    else you can upload you image there.
    use options biggest, most changed for better results on tineye.

    Get the original file name and search Google. Let's say the original file name is "Penguins.jpg". You would search Google for "inurl:Penguins.jpg" or "intitle: Penguins.jpg".

    You may also want to search Google Images for "Penguins.jpg", which will reveal all sites that Google indexed which had a implemented the public resource "Penguins.jpg".

    Hello, you could try finding the picture in google image.  Once picture is found, click on it and image will open on top and at bottom it will show you how it appears on site.  Look at picture for example:

    hello , 
    thats simple .

    just right click on the image and click on " select image location " or " select/copy image url " .

    now open this page -- 

    in the search bar on the screen , you will notice a little camera icon on the right end of the search bar . 
    click on it and now paste the image url , you just copied . 
    and then let google search it .
    it shall display results of reverse image search , that is all sites where that particular or its related are posted .

    another alternative is , if you use Firefox , 
    the TinEye Reverse Engine extension .
    you can also search the image on the TinEye home page as well ..

    try and tell if it worked ....
