I found this excellent tool referenced in one of the blogs that I read that led me to the Fairtrade Photographer Blog and there onto Tineye. Tineye is an image search engine with a bit of a twist. You feed it an image and it compares it against it’s web trawled and indexed image library of 1,785,349,311 images to date. It then tells you where that image has been found elsewhere on the internet.
This is a great tool for anyone dealing with images, photos etc on the internet if you want to see if your work is being used without your knowledge. Maybe you are considering purchasing stock images and want to see if they are in use elsewhere on the internet?
They have plugins for most popular browsers so that you can right click on an image and get the image checked.
Goto http://www.tineye.com/ and have a look.
