How do you find images using Google? Google Image Search http://images.google.com Image search may give results according to keywords or metadata from images. Are all the results you get related to what you searched for?
So, basically, it is google image search in reverse. You can submit an image 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
When you submit an image to be searched, TinEye creates a unique and compact digital signature or fingerprint for it, then compares this fingerprint to every other image in our index to retrieve matches. TinEye can even find a partial fingerprint match. TinEye does not typically find similar images (i.e. a different image with the same subject matter); it finds exact matches including those that have been cropped, edited or resized.
