Today, we are introducing two new options: “newest” and “oldest”. These sort functions are date specific. The “newest” sort order displays the TinEye image results most recently found by TinEye’s web-crawlers at the top. The “Oldest” does the opposite, showing the earliest crawled images at the top. This is handy of course for anyone who is researching an image and trying to find out when it started appearing online, doing image verification or simply like a lot of our TinEye fans unearthing fake images. I am sure that you all still remember the slew of fake Hurricane Sandy images that flooded the social networks and the web!
