Useful link

Thought the community might be interested in this link, it's a search engine for finding images which can apparently find partial matches. Could be useful if you see an image you're sure has been ripped but can't remember where from

http://tineye.com

It's still building up an index just now, so it can't find things too easily yet. Hopefully though, once it's more fully developed, it'll be something that will be a big help to artists wanting to make sure they haven't been ripped off.

EDIT: Since someone asked, I ran a test using an image I had edited. I used this image, since I figured a celebrity photo was more likely to have been indexed already than most. Search engine found a bunch of matches when I blocked out the eyes and mouth with a black strip, but blocking out the face made it fail (about 1/3 of the image). Still, it seems to work pretty well for smaller edits, and I would guess that for most people's purposes it'll do the job fine. Just as long as they actually get around to indexing enough images :p

fascinating. :) i was wondering if anything like this existed. as with 4chan and 7chan in-site engines can recognize when an image has been uploaded more than once (and blocks the 2nd attempt).

yaay!

I didn't know they could do that, I thought it was just file names they compared.

wow! that seems so cool it could almost be an answer to a prayer :)
I wonder how accurate it would/will/could be with traced images. Definitly something we have to watch :)
has anyone tried it yet? with something not as common as Mona Lisa?

Edited entry, I ran a test with a photo of DiCaprio, seemed to do pretty well at matching.

I found two of my images being used as avatars on foreign sites using Tineye. One of my friends had 76 hits for one of her images >>;

When I first heard of TinEye I asked Jonathan Bailey of PlagiarismToday.com what he thought about it. He did a write up of it: http://www.plagiarismtoday.com/2008/08/19/tineye-protecting-images-preventing-orphans/

It's a nice little tool to have. And now its open sign ups. :)

I also let Mr. Bailey know about a Grease Monkey script I use with Firefox, he's trying to get an article on it as well (http://cpetten.deviantart.com/art/dA-Rip-Detector-76022748).
