Google Reverse Image

Google Reverse Image is first and best known, and to most the starting point to finding images. You simply upload an image in their form and watch Google find any similar matches. It can be a little limited, but it can also allow image searches from a text string. Website here!

TinEye

TinEye is very much like Google Reverse Images search, but seems to have a different set of results. They do offer a nifty contextual menu option, which can save time in the upload process. Website here!

ImageRaider

ImageRaider is a similar affair to Google and TinEye, but seems on the whole to be a lot slower. It claims to be able to look deeper into websites for possible versions of an uploaded image. The interface is pleasant, but tests have set the site on hold due to lagging on results. Website here!

Yandex

Yandex is a Russian based image search site, that has options much the same as Image Raider, and starts by giving you those options of file type. It has a great interface that is very simple to use, and has different result recording to those of Google, TinEye, etc. Website here!
