Default How to upload S4 photo to google image search

Typing that title into Google got me no useful results.
I have a picture in my S4 photos I'd like to put into google image search.
I can do it by transferring it to my PC but how could I do that from the phone?

TIA

Mr Lucky:

I connect the phone via USB to the PC,
open the photo folder,
copy the file to the a folder on the PC
(BTW the 5MB of S4 pictures is too big and slow so I could scale them back using Gimp at this stage.)
Start Images.google.com
click on the camera icon
Browse to where I saved the file, and upload.
Then google images shows me images which look similar.

BUT the camera icon is not present in the S4 Image search app.

Try this.... Go to Google on your phone. I'm doing this in the stock browser, then hit menu>desktop view. Then on the desktop version of the webpage, you should be able to click image along the top of the page and it shows the little camera button in the search box.
