You know how cool it is to be able to look up that person who called you just by putting in their phone number? Well here’s a website that gives you the same reverse lookup, but for images! Find all the usages of an image on the internet…just upload it to the website, and you’ll see all the places the image has appeared.
It’s called TinEye, and according to the website:
It finds out where an image came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or if there is a higher resolution version.
TinEye doesn’t use metadata or keywords, but, rather, uses “image identification. technology.” Contributors include gettyimages, istockphoto, masterfile, photoshelter, and wikimedia. Plugins are available for Firefox, Chrome, IE, and Safari.
