Do you often need to find images similar to the one you liked? You can’t find the words to describe it – you just need more images of the kind or the same image with a higher resolution.
TinEye is the first image search engine on the web to use image identification technology rather than keywords, metadata or watermarks. When you submit an image to be searched, TinEye creates a unique and compact digital signature or ‘fingerprint’ for it, then compares this fingerprint to every other image in our index to retrieve matches. TinEye does not typically find similar images; it finds exact matches including those that have been cropped, edited or resized.
It works great actually:
- Just install the addon and re-start your FireFox;
- Right-click on any image;
- Click “Search image with TinEye”
You can search for similar images right from Google image search results for example:
And here are the similar images found:
