Find your photos online

By Andrew Hudson Published: July 28, 2011 Updated: January 9, 2017

How can you tell if your photos are being used by other people online? How can you find unauthorized copies of your pictures on websites? Here’s a way that’s easy and free.

Carolyn E. Wright at PhotoAttorney suggests this approach “to fight copyright infringement of your work.”

Open one of your photos on your computer. Then go to Google Images and drag your photo into the Google Images search box. A display of photos will pop up and you can see where your photo is being used online.

Another service is TinEye.

This was very helpful. I didn’t know that you can track your images like that online.
