TinEye in action
If Google Images is a hand grenade, TinEye is a sniper rifle.

Best TinEye tag line ever! This appears on a blog post from Wired Magazine’s How To wiki about tools to figure out where an image originated.



Please add similar image also google block the similar images

That’s probably the best and most exact comparance of the two services.
Keep up the good work, Tineye!

Just like rifles and hand-grenades, I use both in any one instance.
Somewhat off topic: did you hear about Tineye being used to detect unoriginality in the 2008-2009 New Mexico SuperComputing Challenge (http://challenge.nm.org/archive/08-09/)? Sniper rifle.

Necesito informacion de como registrarme y poder subir una imagen para buscar similitudes y si en mi pais existe alguien parecido

Like a sniper rifle, tineye gets fewer results and often can’t find the image I am looking for even if I know that I have seen said image elsewhere. The “Hand Grenade” of Google tends to get me actual results.
