So I found a cute picture of a dog today on the internet, as you do. It was credited to a blog post, but the original blog post was completely absent of a credit for the image (as is so often the case). While I wanted to post it on my blog (because everyone needs cute dogs, right?), I didn’t want to do so without giving due props to the creator. Here’s where the fantastic ?¿ src-img bookmarklet comes in.
If you haven’t used this before, it’s a fantastic little tool created by Jarred Bishop and Hayden Hunter which will overlay links on images that, when clicked, take you to a Google Image search and more often than not turns up the original image (though sometimes it will still take you a few clicks to find out, especially if the image has been pinned on a billion Pinterest walls).
As it turns out, the dog photo is by Thomas Hole (who also has a Tumblr and took some great photos of a 2012 round-the-world trip that included New Zealand). The photo is All Rights Reserved, so rather than posting the original image here I’m instead showing the overlay view you get when running the ?¿ src-img bookmarklet.
