Reverse Image Search Technology


Google Search by Image Feature

This may be a new term for you but many of you are currently using this technology! Most people know this term as - Search by Image. What we call search by image is originally known as Reverse Image Search. There are several sites which provide this service. But in terms of speed, reliability and user friendliness I prefer Google Image Search. 


About Google Reverse Image Search

Normally we search something through texts. But reverse image search technology can take pictures/ images as input. And it displays related images as the result. 

The images you're using to search will be stored by Google. When you're using the search by image feature, the search result may include - 
  • Similar images
  • Web Pages that include that image
  • Other sizes of that image

When searching by the picture of a well known person, you will get many other information along with the similar images. Search by image works best when you search an image which is famous and available in different sites. 

That means your personal photo or latest party photos have hardly any chance to appear in the search result. 



Reverse Image Search Techniques (Laptop & Desktop)

You can use this feature from any desktop browser (Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari, Opera). But Google Chrome (And Firefox also) has some built in options to use search by image feature. 

So, I hope, all of you are using the updated version of Google Chrome. 

There are several techniques to use this technique. Follow any of the techniques below:

1. Upload an Image:

  1. Visit Google Images
  2. Hit on the Camera Icon that appears in the search box.
  3. You will have two options: 1. Paste an image URL from web and press Enter 2. Upload an image > Choose File > Select a File from your Storage.
  4. That's it! 

2. Drag n Drop the Image into the Search Box
  1. Visit Google Images > Keep your browser window restored down.
  2. Locate the photo from hard disk > Click on it and hold down the mouse.
  3. Drag the image into the search box and release it.
  4. Let Google find out the details . . . 

3. Open an Image from Browser Window
  1. Open a new tab on your chrome browser.
  2. Press Ctrl+O > Locate, select and open your desired image from hard disk.
  3. After the image appears, right click on it, choose > Search Google for this Image
  4. It will do the same job as it did when you upload an image!

Search by an Image from Browser Tab


4. Search for an Image that Appears on a Website

Suppose you would like to search by an image that appears on a website. You wanna find other versions or sizes or similar images of that photo. Just follow the steps below:
  1. Suppose you've visited Microsoft or Apple or any other website.
  2. There you've got the image of any device. If you wanna search it in Google, simply click right on it.
  3. Choose search Google for this image.
  4. A new tab will be opened with the search result. 

Search by Image from Website



As an illustration, I've searched the photo of MacGyver. The search result is as below:


Search by an Image Result


Look at the search result. What does it include?

  • The file name, extension and a small icon of the uploaded image.
  • The size of the uploaded image - 300 x 378
  • Best Guess for the Image - macgyver
  • A brief about MacGyver on the right sidebar
  • Some popular websites about MacGyver
  • Visually similar images of MacGyver


Limitations

This technology still needs to be enriched. The images which are not famous will hardly appear in the result. But at least you can trace out the fake IDs of Facebook which include the photos of celebrity of different countries! :) 


May I have your attention please? This tutorial is based on Google Chrome!

Wisp: A Great Theme for PowerPoint Presentation



Wisp Theme for PowerPoint


In this post, I'm just introducing a theme with you - Wisp! This is a superb theme that comes with PowerPoint 2013. I'm gonna share this with you so that you can use it with other versions of PowerPoint. 


About Wisp Theme

In my eyes, Wisp is the most beautiful theme I've ever seen in PowerPoint. It's very light and great for designing any kind of slides - business, education or home. With green gradient background and red accent, it can win the heart of your audience!

Just few days ago, I had a presentation in my class. I was searching for a nice theme. And I discovered this. 

During the presentation, everybody was just looking at the slides. At one end, they were amazed by the theme, on the other end, they were also amazed by the beautiful combination of transitions and design.

Put Slide Number on PowerPoint


Numbering PowerPoint Slides


When you are delivering a formal lecture or presentation through PowerPoint slides, numbering the slides are very important. It helps you operate the slides in proper order and ensures you're not skipping or repeating something. And during the presentation, if you need to go back to a particular slide, slide numbers then are of great importance! 



And after the presentation, audience may ask you question regarding a particular slide. If you have serial numbers on the slides, you can easily find out the right slide to defense your answer. 


Applies to

  • PowerPoint 2007
  • PowerPoint 2010
  • PowerPoint 2013


Instruction
  1. Run PowerPoint from your PC. 
  2. Open a previously generated presentation or create a new one.
  3. Go to the Insert tab > Move to the Header & Footer option under Section area.
  4. Mark the Slide Number checkbox. If you don't need number on the first slide then also mark the option - Don't show on title slide
  5. Choose Apply to All. That's it!

Now the slide number will be added in a suitable position. If your theme has a special location for slide number, then it will be automatically added there. 

Let's consider the Wisp theme


Location of Slide Number


Look at the upper left corner. The dark red are with the number 1. This is the location of slide number in wisp theme. 


You will find this feature in some other themes too. And the themes which don't have such location, the slide number will be added to the bottom right corner.

Adding Border to Word Document . . .


Adding Borders to a Page



To decorate your word document, you can put border around the page. You can put the border either in the first page, section or whole document. Not everywhere page border is applicable. Only use it where necessary.


Page Border in Earlier Versions of MS Word

Same feature is also available on Office XP or 2003. As people are not using them anymore, I'll just focus on running versions. If you're using Office XP or 2003, just follow the steps below - 

Format Menu > Borders & Shading > Page Border

After getting the Borders & Shading dialogue box, things are almost similar! 



This Tutorial Applies to -  
  • Microsoft Word 2007
  • Microsoft Word 2010
  • Microsoft Word 2013

Note: Images, screenshots and instructions used in this document are based on Office 2013. 



About Borders & Shading > Page Borders

With page borders, you can create stylish borders around your pages. MS Word allows you to create normal borders as well as many stylish borders. And you have the option to adjust the thickness, size, distance from the text, and color of the border.


Adding a Simple Page Border/ Art Border
  1. Open an existing word document or create a new one.
  2. Go to the Design tab and find Page Borders option from the right.
    Page Borders in Word 2013
  3. Hit on the Page Borders to get Borders and Shading window.
  4. Make sure Page Border tab is selected.
    Borders and Shading Dialogue Box
  5. Choose either Box or Shadow from located under Settings > Choose a border style > Change Color if necessary > You can also choose stylish border from the drop down list of Art option > Adjust the width > Choose Apply to - Whole Document/ Section/ First page only > Then hit OK. 
If everything is okay, you will get your selected border/ art border around your page. 



Customizing the Art Border - Tips n Tricks
  • Color - You can only change the color of black borders. 
  • Width - Art borders have different widths - 20 to 31 pt. I don't prefer more than 10 pt.
  • Preview - You can remove the border from any of the side. If you click on left, the left border will be removed. If you hit on bottom, the bottom border will be removed. Clicking again will take the border back.
  • Apply to - Choose whether the border will be applied to Whole Document/ First page/ current section.
  • Option > Measure from - Edge of page will put the border at the edge of page. Text will bring the border closer to your text. You can also manually adjust the values from margin. I think you should choose 5 pt for every sides.

After you complete these tasks hit OK > OK. 



Creating Section

Section helps you to differentiate some settings from other part of your document. Suppose you need page border for first 5 pages of your document. To do this, you need a section break. Otherwise the border will be added to the whole document. 

If your document has no section, then you have to create one. Suppose your first section will include the first 5 pages. From the 6th page, you want the next section. 

Put your cursor at the end of page 5. Then create section break as - 

Page Layout Tab > Page Setup Section > Breaks > Section Breaks > Next Page > To check the section, double click on header or footer.

Now you can use different settings for different sections. And you can create as many sections as you need. 


Removing the Border

It's really embarrassing when you need to remove the border but you don't know how! It's just how did you put the border. Follow the steps below - 
  1. Design > Page Borders > Borders and Shading
  2. Make sure Page Border tab is selected
  3. Under the Settings, choose None > hit Enter/ OK > Everything will be clear!


Hopefully it's a complete tutorial on MS Word Page Border. If you're having any sort of problem regarding this issue, please knock me . . .
