    This is most times not doable. In order to have some chance to find, your best chances is that it has a rather distinctive filename. This is the best and most plausible way in order to find the original source. Another thing i would probably do is search the google images for a keyword that i feel it mostly fits to the image representation. Whatever you do though, it's a really difficult task.

    Is this even possible? With the rate of use and reuse of images found online for web development purposes and on social media.

    You can find other web pages where the picture is posted using Google Image Search, but it's really difficult to figure out the origin.

    Tineye reserve image search is the only way you can find origin of the image.

    It would be extremely difficult to find its original origin, but you could use Google image search to see what other sites are using it. You never know you may find its original source.

    There are some sites which can provide you the information that where the given image are appearing on internet. Search them on Google.

    Google Image search is the best option.
