Sometimes you see images on blogs and the web and you wonder where did the image come from and how to get the same image but with a higher resolution.
With TinEye, the first visual search engine that identifies the origin of images on the web, your problems are solved. When you submit an image to TinEye it will find out where the image is appearing on the web and if there are any other versions available.
So how does that work?
Using sophisticated pattern recognition algorithms, TinEye creates a unique and compact digital signature or ‘fingerprint’ for each image that is added to the index. When you submit a search image to TinEye, its fingerprint is analyzed on-the-fly and compared to the fingerprint of every single image in the TinEye search index. The result is a detailed list of websites using that image, or modifications of that image.
