TinEye updates
TinEye now in open beta

Greetings, TinEyers! Good news for those of you looking for invites to share with friends, or those of you who have not had a chance to create an account yet. TinEye is now in open beta, which means that signup is instant and anyone can join the fun!

To create a free, instant account, just visit the TinEye website and click on the ‘Sign up now!’ link. You will need to verify your email address first, but once you’re done you can go ahead and search to your heart’s content.

And if you are as excited about TinEye as we are (and believe me, we’re an excitable bunch), then feel free to spread the word.

Impressive. Are you coming out with a plug-in for internet explorer any time soon? I’d like to try it out.

Hi Toshu,

Thanks for your comment and question.

Yes, we have a plug-in for IE, you can grab it by heading over to TinEye’s plugin page http://tineye.com/plugin.

Happy searching, and do let us know what you think after you’ve had a chance to take TinEye for a spin!

I’ve tried to register but the reCAPTURA bit isn’t there!

Instead it says:
‘This reCAPTCHA key isn’t authorized for the given domain.’

And without the reCAPTCHA key you can’t register!

Wow… TinEye, never heard of it. Thanks for bringing that to my attention! I was a little rushed doing that post, I didn’t even bother to look at what you were linking!
