TinEye is a reverse image search engine. You can submit an image to TinEye to find out where it came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or to find higher resolution versions. TinEye is the first image search engine on the web to use image identification technology rather than keywords, metadata or watermarks. This image search engine will be helpful for photographers and other people who want to search copies of their images online. Okay! say no to image theft now!

TinEye finds exact and altered copies of the images that you submit, including those that have been cropped, colour adjusted, resized, heavily edited or slightly rotated. TinEye does not commonly return similar matches, and it cannot recognize the contents of any image.

    I was just going to let you know that there are a couple typos on your page. The firefox plug in should say Tineye, not TinyEYE – the extra’y’. If you could update that i would greatly appreciate it.
    Have a happy holiday,
