Most everyone knows that if you need to find some clipart or a photo to dress up a presentation you are working on, that you can use Google Images. There are also many good image services such as PhotoDune where you can get professional images for a dollar or two.
What you may not know is that there is a service that does reverse image searches. Say for instance that you kind of like the image you have, but want it in a higher resolution, or you want it with a different colored background.
With TinEye, you upload the image that you have and it quickly returns links to very similar ones. It also can be used to find out more about the image you have – such as where it came from and how it is being used.
Best of all, it’s a free service and you don’t even have to register for it. To-date the service has cross-indexed over 11 billion images from all over the internet. This little gem of a site is worth tucking away in your tool-chest for improving reports and presentations. Find it at www.tineye.com.
