    Where do people get this idea that's even possible. And why do you even need to find someone if you don't have a clue what their name is... and if you don't know their name... WHY would they even want you to find them. Only a stalker would do that.

    If it's a fairly well known person, you can use Google image search but other than that, you can't find someone by a picture. Why do you need to find them anyway?

    Very good questions. I'll be curious to see if they are answered.

    Finding someone with just a picture online, is almost impossible, unless they're very well known, and the picture you have already exists online. The same picture. And that picture is on a site that does search by picture, and actually has that picture on their site. Most of those sites have only a tiny percentage of the pictures online on their site.

    You'd have a better chance finding a needle in a haystack.

    I too have to ask why you don't know who this person is. You have his/her picture, so surely you must know them if you're that desperate to find them. At least a name, location, age. Something. Not just a picture.

    It's really creepy that you're trying to find someone you obviously don't know, just because you have a picture of them. Gives me the creeps.

    Well...I can think of 2 reasons that would cause someone to want to find someone based on a picture. 1) They are a stalker. 2) They are being scammed by a dating scammer andthey want to see if the picture the scammer sent them is really who they are claiming it to be.

    There is no real way for a average person to find the name of someone, from just a photo. If you trying to find the name of a movie star or some famous person, it may be.

    Even the police do not have or use that type of ID on any normal basis.
