A Facebook picture search can be as simple as accessing the site's search bar. The site's search bar recognizes natural language, making it easy to find photos on Facebook, depending on your relationship with users and their privacy settings. There are also a few methods to look for pictures without being logged in to Facebook.
Finding Pictures on Facebook

Every day, Facebook users upload 300 million photos to the social media site. Despite this volume, searching with a few well thought-out phrases will yield valid results. Facebook's search bar combs through all the social platform's content. It differs from Google, which searches and indexes the web, in two important ways: (1) it searches only Facebook and (2) it respects privacy settings.Related Articles

Privacy settings on the user's Facebook account determine what images appear in search results. Photos with a public setting will always appear in the results. Photos with a privacy setting of 'Friends' will appear if you are friends with the person. Images with a privacy setting of 'Friend of a Friend' appear if the person posting the original photo is a friend of one of your friends. However, if a person is tagged in a photo - and the photo has a public setting - it will appear in the results, regardless of their connection to you.

Looking for Pictures of Yourself in Others' Albums
Even though this feels like it should be easy, this is actually one of the trickier ones to find. This is because the settings on the album and photos are controlled by the person doing the posting.
Type 'Photos I am tagged in,' 'Photos of me,' or 'Tagged photos of me'.
You can also try 'Photos of me in friends albums,' or 'albums I am tagged.'
Searching for a Specific Photo

For this type of search, it is best to fall back on either the subject, event and/or person in the photograph.Start by typing 'Photos of.' To find a photo of a friend or family member, this is the easiest method, even if they have a common surname like Smith, because the search tool will default to your list of friends. This method will also reveal any photos the user may have hidden from their timeline. As Business Insider points out, hiding a photo from a timeline does not mean other users cannot see it. The only method that keeps an image truly hidden is to remove tags connecting an image with a user or to adjust the privacy setting.
