What others are saying

“It's like a Google image search except you use pictures instead of text.” — Zohreen Adamjee, L.A. Times

Kevin Kelly declares TinEye a cool tool

“If you are trying to keep track of how your creations are used across the web, or you saw an image and want to find out where it came from, TinEye is incredibly useful. When it comes to matching up images that could be posted on other parts of the web, TinEye excels.”— Jacqui Cheng, Ars Technica

“A major player in the image-search arena.” — Jack Howard, Popular Photography

“I've seen my fair share of image search demos, and they usually promise far more than they deliver... I finally saw one that deserves the name...” — Eric Schonfeld, TechCrunch

“Idée is doing facinating stuff...” — Mark Frauenfelder, Boing Boing


“Some new technologies will make you go "gee whiz, that's pretty neat-o". Others will cause the stronger reaction "gosh dang jeez, that's simply witchcraft, get the pitchforks, torches, and holy water". TinEye, now in public beta from Idée of Toronto, gets very close to appearing as witchcraft.” Greg Andrews, Techvibes

PC Pro

“An entirely new way for image companies and amateur photographers to track how and where their images are being used, without the need for digital watermarks.” Stuart Turton, PC Pro

National Post

“The next frontier for how we search for content online.” — David George-Cosh, Financial Post – PDF (352 KB)


“TinEye is a major undertaking, and it is going to bring Idée out of the shadows of the Enterprise product space and right in to your livingroom with a tool that is the equivalent of a Google for images. In fact, I bet Google wishes they had an image search as great as TinEye.” Jevon MacDonald, StartupNorth

Press materials

TinEye is a reverse image search engine. You can submit an image to TinEye to find out where it came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or to find higher resolution versions.

TinEye is brought to you by the good folks at Idée Inc., an advanced image recognition and search software company.
