    New In Google Image Search: Search By Image

    Not as crazy as it might sound. If you are on the Google Image Search page you can now drag an image over the text entry box. A new box pops up which says 'Seach by image Drop image here"


    After your search is completed you can select an image from the results or add text into the search box to refine your search.

    This sounds worrying, I hope @tom_newton and team have been working on blocking this as I suspect this could be the latest way of obtaining inappropriate images perhaps by circumventing word filtering etc (although the Smoothie is much smarter than just using words!) but it won't take long before its abused by students I suspect!
