How to find stolen blog photos!

I spotted this article on Lacquerized last night...  She was telling us how the new google images can show who's nicked our photos for their blogs.

 

HOW TO: FIND YOUR "BORROWED" PHOTOS WITH GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH


 

So anyway I tried it out thinking nobody would copy me... turns out people have nabbed my pictures! The most shocking being this offender...


Look familiar? That's right, it's my image of minx nails, with my watermark cropped out. (to see the original article click here)


 



The ironic thing... that article was about how you don't need to go to salons to get minx nails done.


Thanks to Lacquerized for pointing it out and I'd love to know what you unearth!

  1. Oooh it's so annoying :(. The watermark cropping/hiding really IS frustrating, isn't it?

  2. Noooo- don't post a link to their blog! I'm all for naming & shaming but don't increase hits to them when they've stolen your pics!

  5. Right on! Google rules in this regard.

    TinEye is rather ineffective... There's one free tool you can use to find duplicate photos much easier and faster.
