Default TinEye

Hi there!

I'm aware of the existence, and to some extent of the qualities of TinEye. But I have the impression that it is an emanation of TrekEarth:
- same initials
- similar layout (with a colour change, but...)

Am I the only one?

Hi Olivier
I don't understand what you mean by TinEye being an emanation of TrekEarth, using same initials and with similar layout.

If you put a photo on Tineye it will search a small part of the web to see if that photo has been placed on the web before.

I am now quoting from the TinEye site:

TinEye is the first image search engine on the web to use image identification technology. You can submit an image to TinEye to find out where and how that image appears on the web, or to find modified or edited versions.

How does TinEye work?
TinEye’s spiders crawl the web regularly for images. 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.

There have been some photos posted by a photographer on TrekLens that when put through TinEye have been found to have been posted on the Web at least once before and up to 111 times by other photographers. One photo was even used to advertise a movie many years ago.

Do you mean TinEye or something else?

That's a smart observation, Olivier. I believe it was developed by Adam to reinvigorate the forum here at TE.
