Here I will show you how you can do a Reverse Image Search that is searching the name of things using the image, instead of searching image using text. . In the end read the alternate uses you can put this Image search tool to.

TinEye is a tool developed by Idée Labs. TinEye currently has indexed 1.8 billion images in its database,and it keeps adding million of images every month.

To start with Reverse Image Search is simple :

  1. Visit TinEye and then upload the image you want information about or you can simply paste the link to the image. Hit Search
  2. You will get a list of sites and a thumbnail of the image which matches the Image you uploaded. TinEye has ability to match modified versions of the images also, so checkout the ones you want.
  3. You will see a link to the page where the image has appeared click on that and see for yourself in what context the Image was used. In our example I tried finding the name of the famous Afghan Girl.
  4. Read the text and the content around the image. So we also found the name of this famous Afghan Girl using her image – “Sharbat Gula”. Task accomplished! As for finding contacts of real people – here one can find experia contact number, the tool making life easier, too.

Alternate uses of Reverse Image Searching: Copyscape your images (see where your images are being used), Find better resolution for images (click biggest image on left) , search modified version of images(try Monalisa’s image), for feedback about a particular image (read what others write about your image).
