    I have always faced one issue regarding Reverse image search, and i'll be very grateful if someone helps me with it. Whenever i search Google with an image, results always show up the same pictures of varying resolutions.
    Let's say i to find different images containing the same content as the search image. Far fetched thought, but can it be possible?
    Nice share OP, those who were unaware of it will find it useful.
