Searching for an Image Using Google: An Illustrated Tutorial

Have you ever seen something and wondered, "What is that?" Well, thanks to the internet, it is possible to take a photo of that something and do a google search for it!  One of my kids taught me how, but in case you don't have access to a teen or young adult, let me share how it is done.
First, go to google.  (www.google.com)



This just in:  I'm informed that you can just click and drag an image to the Google images tab, too--just like it says in that box!

I'm assuming that you've got it from there, but if you need help knowing how to copy/paste or upload, let me know, and I'll be glad to walk you through it, Mom (or anyone else).  :-)

Thanks for technology, and children who teach me how to use it.
