    Default How To Use TinEye to Perform a Reverse Image Search To Find Original Source Of An Image

    If you’ve ever come across an image on the web and wanted to know more about it like where it came from, how many times it has been used, or if it was ever modified, you know that it’s pretty difficult to find this kind of information.
    Fortunately, TinEye makes this a rather easy task and is the perfect tool for finding the original source of an image along with other types of information. TinEye performs reverse image searches by using original images (that you submit) to gather information and then shows you results within seconds. As a matter of fact, you’ll be able to see just how many seconds it took TinEye to find your results along with how many images it searched through.
    With TinEye you can also view modifications done to an image and compare them to the original version. If you’re looking for an image in a bigger size, TinEye can help you with that too. You can view the both the dimension and files size of all images. Best of all, TinEye is free to use (for non-commercial searching). To get started, you first have to find and submit an image.

    Searching For Images
    There are currently 3 ways to perform a reverse image search on TinEye. No matter which method you choose, you’ll get the same results. It’s really just a matter of preference and convenience.

    Upload An Image

    You can browse for an image on your computer and upload it to the site. TinEye will do a search and show you the results.

    Enter The URL

    You can also enter the URL of the actual image or the page containing the image. TinEye can use either of these to find the image on the web and display results.

    Use The Browser Plugin

    Lastly there are browser plugins for Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera that you can use to perform searches on the fly. The plugin is very handy: whenever you’re come across an image, right-click on it and select “Search Image on TinEye.” Your results will then open up in a new tab.

    If you prefer bookmarklets, they have one of those as well.

    Results Page

    This is the results page you’ll see once TinEye has performed a search. If there are no results, it means that TinEye hasn’t crawled the website or page where the image appears. You’ll want to keep checking back though because they are constantly crawling new pages and adding new images to their library.

    You can see really see some interesting results by viewing the “Most Changed” results. Here you can see all kinds of variations of the image along with some interesting editing work from other users.

    Share Results

    TinEye lets you share your search results on Twitter, Facebook, via email, and many other services via AddThis. This is done by clicking on one of the share options on the side of your results.
    You can also share individual items by clicking on “Link” right underneath the image.

    View Source
    TinEye will show you the actual link to the image and the page where the image can be found. This is great if you’re looking for the original source of an image or need to give credit within an article.

    Side note: Using “Link” underneath an image does not give you the source of the image, it simply gives you a link to the result on TinEye.

    Compare Images

    Underneath each image you’ll see a “Compare” link which lets you compare your submitted image to the results found on TinEye. You can click on the “Switch” button to go back and forth between the two and view any differences.

    This works best when looking at the Most Changed and Biggest images since these are the ones which are most likely to have been edited in some way.

    Final Thoughts

    TinEye is a handy tool to have around; plus the extension makes it super easy to quickly search for an image and find out more about it. There is definitely nothing to lose with this tool and it will also help you find some interesting variations of images you may want to use in your articles.
    What do you think? Is TinEye a useful tool or can you live without it?
