To help you find the image you're looking for,Google Images sometimes shows you popular refinements so you can narrow down your search. These refinement searches are commonly associated with your original search. Refinements are especially useful when you’re not sure exactly what you’re searching for or when you’re just looking to browse through images about a specific topic. Here is an example of the refinement panel I got when searching for images on " Mars "

11-Hover over a panel to view some sample images.

When you click an image search result, the image viewer will open under the search results you were looking at with a larger version of your selected image. To close the viewer, simply click on the X in the top right corner or the selected image. In this view, you can see more detailed information and use handy tools.

14- Search by Image
Search by image allows you to do a reverse image search and discover all sorts of content that's related to a specific image. For example, search using a picture of your favorite band and see search results that might include similar images, web pages about the band, and even sites that include the same picture.
To search by image visit images.google.com, or any Images results page, and click the camera icon in the search box. Enter an image URL for an image hosted on the web or upload an image from your computer.
