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


I know nothing about the algorithms used by Tineye, so I have no idea about its effectiveness in comparing framed and unframed images. I have noticed that it proposes apparently cropped versions as duplicates, so maybe it can overcome frames.

Like I wrote before, I find a bit strange that it doesn't detect duplicates between my accounts in Panoramio and TE and if you enquiry a duplicate of a TE photo from the other site it doesn't present the TE image. That makes me suspecting that they avoid indexing TE, Panoramio and probably other photo sites on purpose to spare resources.

I don't know any other tool that does what Tineye does.
