Default Re: How to check if your photos have been stolen


I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but my images are almost systematically duplicated to at least one other site (, and when I try TinEye, I never get a "hit", although I have suggested a certain number of web pages to them, including Nikonians. And I mean real duplicates, with exactly the same image uploaded there, not another size or version! Actually, the only time TinEye (notice how it can be abbreviated to TE too?), it was clearly not the same image, although it was a picture of the same place.

So either it is sooooooo intelligent that it knows it's me too, or it's not complete at all.

In conclusion, if you're really worried about undue use of your images, don't post. If you decide to post, be ready, someone can use them!
