I saw recently there was a website where you could check if pictures were fake or had been downloaded from another site.


Any help please need to try and verify if this person is real or a fake

thanks

Remember that Tineye only covers a tiny proportion of all the images on the web and doesnt index some types of sites ...
if something doesnt show up on a tineye search it doesnt mean very much ...

Well, it means that Tineye haven't found it!

If you manage to download an image and then upload it from your computer as your own... I'd imagine tinyeye can't keep tabs on that?

tineye only works on sites/portfolios which don't require a password to access.

quoting post from rod:

It also doesn't work on sites which don't require a password either.
I've got quite a few pictures which have gone on news site and tineye couldn't find them either.
So whilst it may find an image if it's been nicked, if it doesn't, as the lurved up Mr Miller said, "It doesn't mean very much"...

Assuming its crawlwers have the image in the database it will identify it.

There is all the info on the tineye website on how it works, its main current limitation is catching up with all the existing images
