How to put images and photos on Google (Upload to Google Image search) danielroofer 1/12/10 8:08 AM
Update June 2012

Here is a help document created by Google:  http://support.google.com/images/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=175288&rd=3

Here is a help video also by Google: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbkjGe7Re6k


Below is my original post, it was written in 2010:

This thread should help those who wish to include images or photos in Google Image search so when you type a given keyword/phrase your photos appear.

Please note that currently it is not possible to upload directly to Google. Please read on for an explaination of how to put your images or photos on the Google Image search engine.

How can I put my photo on Google?
Put your images on a website and wait for Google to see them, they will then include them in the image search, make sure you have some descriptive text near the image so Google understands what keywords to associate the image with. Ideally you should fill out an image ALT tag. (avoid keyword stuffing! Just write normally but think about your keywords.)

What if I do not own a website, can I upload to Google images?
No. Google is a search engine, they locate images on the web and create a link from Google Images. You cannot upload directly.

What If I do not own a website, neither I do not have a friend with a website. What now?
The easiest way to include your images would be to upload them to an image hosting site, like Picasa or Flickr, Google periodically checks these sites for new images, just be patient and make sure you have filled out a description next to the image. Make sure you have not blocked search engines with strict privacy settings.

Any other ways to include photos etc in Google Image search?
If you are confident with a computer then you could create a blog or free website, just put your images on the blog or site with some text and wait for Google to see them, you can submit new websites to Google here:http://www.google.co.uk/addurl/  (just add the homepage and allow 1-3 weeks ish)

Flickr image hosting - http://www.flickr.com/
Picasa web albums and hosting - http://picasa.google.com/support/bin/static.py?page=guide.cs&guide=16027

Free blog software from Google's Blogger - http://www.google.com/support/blogger/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=112498
Free website software from Google - http://www.google.com/sites/help/intl/en/overview.html

IN A NUTSHELL...
Google images is a search engine, not a place to store your images. It works in exacttly the same way as "normal" search results. Google crawls the web and creates links to pages or images they find. So you cannot uplaod images directly to Google image search.

If you have any questions about Google Image search then please ask them here or in the forum.

Hi nofeer87,

Probably best to ask about album/images privacy over at the Picasa help forum: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Picasa?hl=en

I did find these help articles for you: http://picasa.google.com/support/bin/topic.py?hl=en&topic=20047

Hello,
 
I have had my website posted on the web for some time now, and never was able to get a google search to find it. About a month ago, I began using Webmaster Tools. My page was accessible through regular searches, but my images still do not appear in the image search. Any help is greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks,
 
Daniel

Hi Daniel,
 
Thank you for this post.  But I am looking to do just the opposite.  I am trying to take down a photo from Google Images and when this happens it will be a miracle.
 
The site's URL is:  http://www.facebook.com/profile/pic.php?oid=AAAAAQAQe09FVHicvl6s83Uld_y84AAAAAqMRy0rTmb73gB1377c21GG

I have been trying to get a photo removed from google image search for weeks and weeks. The image was accidentally loaded onto Facebook and has been deleted on Facebook. I have followed the instructions of the googles webmasters request page and all required action has been accomplished by me.  But Google still denies and the image still remains.
 
I have submitted requests to https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/removals numerous times.  I have emailed Facebook numerous times.  I repeatedly have been denied and I repeatedly have been following the instructions. 

This image must come down.
Can you please help?
 
The image from the facebook profile is removed and Google recrawled the page. But the image remains.

Can you Daniel create a few links to the page from websites you own?  And when google sees those links it should prompt them to re-visit the page and to see that the image had been removed -

t would be very much appreciated if you being a top contributor could help with the image removal.

Thank you, Jane Doe
