  1. i’ve been using it since i got a beta invite, and i like it. it can only get better the more images it scours.


  2. I’ve been using it for a while as well and have actually found some of my work in place it’s not supposed to be thanks to this technology. While it’s still a little “clunky” the technology, I think, marks a turning point wherein online image tracking is now an accessible technology for the average photographer.

  3. Hmm,

    Very interesting. Immediately found a bunch of my images mirrored on a bunch of russian sites, offered individually or as a package download. I guess a Flash websites aren’t necessarily safe from getting ripped off wholesale.

    While I was there I noticed a lot of big editorial/commercial shooters’ portfolios as well.

    Cool program.


  4. also if you look at the big picture this is good for internet security for my kids if they are talking to someone on facebook that i dont think they know i can use tineye to search the web for there display pictures to see if they are who they say they are great piece of technology
