Photoshelter & TinEye – just married

leave a comment »


Tineye is a search engine in reverse. You can search the web for your images and determine how they’re being used on-line. Tineye is not a new service, but now they’ve indexed more then 1 billion on-line images, so now it’s actually practicable. Photoshelter and TinEye just begun their partnership and TinEye will begin index PhotoShelter-hosted images that are marked as “publicly searchable” and search results will show any other online usage.

I tried them out and I typed THIS URL of one Ambrus image from my flickr account and it did found two sites using my picture. One was Mladina (of course) and second one was www.uykucu.org, that I have no clue who they are or what they do. HERE is the search result. And there is also a very practical add-on available.
