Omar Gallaga’s post “Where in the world wide Web are your photos?” caught my eye today for a few reasons. There’s a great citizen journalist story wrapped up in there, along with some thoughts on Creative Commons, copyright and giving your images away for free.
One quote I found particularly interesting was:
Share your photos with the world, or hide them behind virtual walls? Ratcliff believes there’s really no in-between: “Either you live your life in an open way, or you have to keep it totally private,” he said.
Share your photos with little chance of knowing where they might end up or hide them away, limiting access. How about a happy medium?
We think that TinEye is the have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too option. So go ahead, share your images. Post them online. Now you can find out where they are and how they are being used with TinEye.
