Checking Images

Check whether an image has been used before on the internet and where. Is that image from a suspicious news source one that was stolen from elsewhere on the web and changed? Was the image from a past or different event altogether? You can even use a reverse image search for a profile photo to see if it might be a fake account.  Note: just because you don't find a match doesn't mean the image isn't on the web.  No search tool is perfect or definitive.
