    This is a very handy tool if you want to find info about a certain photo. First, download the Add-on from Mozilla - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/google-reverse-image-search/
    Then find a photo you need info on(personal photos or some photos that have been manipulated won't work)...

    Now right click on the image and hit Reverse Image Search...

    If all goes according to plan, another Tab opens up with your image from probably every web site it is on(note slider on the right, lots of sites with this image).

    Now comes the detective work of finding out what you want to know. Many are in foreign language so a page translator is handy.

    Certainly simplifies the other way of doing which is to copy the URL of the image and then use Google image search...

    Google Chrome allows you to drag a pic from your hard drive into a box on their browser and as soon as you let go it starts searching. It's come in quite handy when trying to find a source or caption info.
