What you make is important

What you make is important

We thought enabling you to search for an image using an images was the apogée of search. The nec plus ultra, the ultimate … well you get my drift. Using TinEye you still had to upload an image or feed TinEye a URL. For those of you still unfamiliar with TinEye (how is that possible?):

TinEye is a reverse image search engine. You can submit an image to TinEye to find out where it came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or to find higher resolution versions. TinEye is the first image search engine on the web to use image identification technology rather than keywords, metadata or watermarks. For some real TinEye search examples, check out our Cool Searches page.

So to make life even easier for you, we created a series of TinEye plugins. And it looks like you guys just totally love our TinEye Firefox plugin: we surpassed 250,000 downloads, and that’s only since we started counting! My team tells me that we are way way beyond that. But hey, we are sticking to the public numbers! And as of this post they are actually getting closer to 300,000 downloads!

I want to thank you for developing this awesome tool. I am finding it invaluable for finding my photos that have have been claimed by others and being sold.
