Website of the Day: TinEye

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.

To learn how to post your favorite websites to our Website of the Day group,

.

I know that this long list looks scary, but trust me, once you get the hang of it, it'll be a snap the second time around.

  1. First of all, join the Website of the Day group.
  2. Click the pink "Share" menu on the top left side of the page.
  3. Choose "Blog" and "Regular Post."
  4. Give your story a "Title."
  5. Fill in the "Body" with a link to your favorite website and the reasons why you love it.
  6. Click "Next."
  7. Choose the audience for your story to "Website of the Day" in the dropdown menu.
  8. Add keyword(s) (for example mine for this photo was "Website of the Day").
  9. Change channel to "Technology and Gadgets."
  10. Fill in tag field with relevant tags.
  11. Click "I’m done" to submit content.

So join the Website of the Day group and share information about all your favorite sites! Yours just might end up on the geeksugar homepage!

I love it! That way I can give credit to whomever took the picture without having to search everywhere.

I agree muse. I don't really see the point of it to be honest.

Pretty neat if you need to find out if someone is using your photos online without your consent. But I'm not sure it serves any other purpose.
