Normally the image searching technology used by major search engines including Google deploy a technology where we can key in a search word or phrase and the search engine will return the image results of that particular search. But what about if you want to search for similar images specific to your chosen image?
TinEye comes to light in this aspect of finding images through the input of an image. Here’s the publishers description:
TinEye is a reverse image search engine. You can submit an image to TinEye 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. TinEye is the first image search engine on the web to use image identification technology rather than keywords, metadata or watermarks.
Here is the video explaining all this concept..
Another good thing about TinEye is that it has got a plugin for both firefox and internet explorer. One can easily install the plugins and then right click any image and select “Search Image on TinEye”.
