TinEye Image Search: Match Photoshopped Photos Online

By Posted 2008 Updated   Blogging

TinEye.com is an new reverse image search engine currently in private beta. Upload an image or give it a photo url, and it will tell you where the image appears on the web!

While most popular image search engines look for images based on keywords you suggest, TinEye attempts to find images similar to the one you uploaded or linked, cropped images and even photoshopped images of the original! TinEye is indexing millions of images and smartly matches the fingerprint of your original photo to the images in their database. You can integrate it in your browsing habits using Firefox too.

For example I paste this image url from some website into Tineye, and it will find there are so many duplicate copies of the same image online, edited or not edited, with detailed urls etc. so that you can locate them exactly on the web.

The you can easily also sort these  images by date, size and the amount of image editing done!

    I felt the need to clarify for anyone else who reads this since I also missunderstood the search engine. Tineye does not search for the content of an image but rather the meta data and file name. Still cool and useful but not what you are expecting by this description.
