TinEye purports to be a website that will do a reverse-image lookup. Feed it an image or the URL of an image, and it claims it will find the places where that image has been used.
I learned about it from this article.
Given the sharing that happened yesterday — scroll down in my post here — I decided to see if TinEye would uncover that use and perhaps others.
Well, perhaps it didn’t like the URL I gave it. But that’s just no excuse. Because I’ve used that image in at least three posts. And it found none of them!
Then I decided to try a famous image. Because I Am Mean!
I used that famous space shuttle photo that’s been floating around and is the subject of the article I linked to at the beginning of this post. I mean, come on, it should be able to find something as widely used as that, right?
So, if I had to answer the question, Does TinEye work at all? My own reply would be: No.
