I use Google Image Search several times a day, but there are times when you need the opposite command — specifically, finding where an image is used on the Internet. TinEye provides this kind of "reverse image search," and it's as easy as any other search engine.
All you have to do is upload the image that you'd like to find — I used the very common '70s red bathing suit Farrah Fawcett poster.
TinEye searches the web and then populates your results with websites and blogs that that very image was used on, even finding cropped or otherwise altered versions of that image.
