How to use TinEye

Using TinEye, you can search by image or perform what we call a reverse image search. You can do that by uploading an image, or searching by URL. You can also simply drag and drop your images to start your search.

TinEye constantly crawls the web and adds images to its index. Today, the TinEye index is over 23.0 billion images.

Upload an image from your computer or mobile device by clicking the upload button to locate the image you wish to search for.

To search by URL, copy and paste a page or image url address into the search box.

Drag an image from a tab in your browser and drop it in a browser tab where TinEye is open.

We don’t save your images

When you search with TinEye, your image is never saved or indexed. TinEye adds millions of new images from the web every day—but your images belong to you. Searching with TinEye is private, secure, and always improving.

Browser extensions

The TinEye extensions allow you to search for any web image by simply right-clicking on images in a web browser. We have an extension for Firefox, Safari, Opera, Chrome and Internet Explorer.

We also have a bookmarklet that will work with any JavaScript-enabled browser and any operating system.

Working with the search results

TinEye's search features have made it easier to sort and filter search results to find the image you are looking for.

Filter by collection can help identify the creator of an image or its copyright holder. Collections are a grouping of images TinEye crawled from the web.

Filter by stock tells you if an image is a stock photograph.

The TinEye Compare feature lets you quickly switch back and forth between your search and result image.

This highlights any differences between the two images. It’s especially useful to see how images have been cropped, resized, skewed or manipulated.
