Reverse image search with TinEye

TinEye is a reverse image search engine. Submit a picture, and TinEye will tell you where it's being used on the web. This could be very handy when you've saved an inspiring photo and can't remember where you found it. I tested it by searching for this photo of mine and found it on 24 sites. Interesting!

I didn't check each one, but it's likely they were just mentioning my post about that project and linking back over here, like I say is fine in the blurb at the bottom of the left sidebar.

This is brilliant!
Thank you for sharing this little tool, I had a stack of images saved in a folder prior to becoming a blogger and didn't even think to keep the source data.
Now I can give credit where it is most deservedly due.
