Ever wonder where an image you see on the Web actually came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or to find higher resolution versions? You can use TinEye as a reverse image search engine to answer all of these questions. Here's how it works:
- Upload an image from your computer, or copy and paste a URL that has the image you're investigating.
- TinEye comes back with a list of possible sources for that image.
TinEye has all sorts of interesting possibilities. For example:
- See how the Mona Lisa has been used all over the globe
- The Google logo has a ton of variations
- The official Obama Biden campaign logo shows up in a lot of different places
