I can recall a similar question from the past, but I believe no such service
is available. There are several existing efforts to label images (rather
than rely on the alt attribute, or captions, or adjacent text). See, for
Searching for similar images on the fly requires indexing of pixels, which is
both computationally expansive and requires high amounts of storage volumes.
The low demand for such service makes it unlikely to become a reality.
Hope it helps,
PS - Please stick to proper case. Your message can easily be interpreted as
