if you use Google Chrome broswer, it's got simple...

just right click on any photo at all and there's an option saying

"Search google for this image"

Just select that, and up pops a new tab with everything it finds

One of my Royal Armouries photos has 4 pages of hits - some blogs, but quite a few are commercial site.

I'm just block invoicing the lot this time... ba$tard$

We're talking 25+ for this one image

Quote: I was in a "local town" tourist information office browsing places to visit, when I overheard a conversation where they were looking for a photograph of the "local town" for the booklet. The lady in charge said that the image they had used was no good and they should "simply google" for a good one...!!! I was shocked for so many reasons, this area of the UK has the most talented photographers and a club but it had not passed her mind to just ask..Sad but she just thought it was ok to use images of the web..

Abasalutly shocking, I have friends that work in the Salisbury TIC and also some are in the camera club. If they wanted a picture then they would submite their own! How does Tin Eye work please?

I just tried a Google search and got this message - The URL doesn't refer to an image, or the image is not publicly accessible.

It's from a URL for an image on my site that I know appears on other publicly available sites. Maybe some forms of site protection make it look like the image on my site isn't pubic?

You have a clear gif layer over your images to prevent right click copying. If you use the actual URL of some of your images it works fine.

That's what I figured - but I think I was using the URL for the image. I'll look later, maybe I wasn't.

If you have a lot of public images why don't you want to put them here? Just wondering.

is it part of the theme/website setup?

if so, I bet you can get plugins to do it for you...

It's an option you can switch on I think with the company I use.

if you're really really keen you can view the source of the page and look for the URL there... I think it's pretty easy with Chrome actually

copy the URL and paste it into google image search - job done
