• How to find Who’s Using Your Pictures Online

    Ever wonder who use your pictures, when you publish them on a social media?

    If you’re like me, you probably want to know who use your photos on the Internet. So, I will show you the easiest way I found using only Google. You will see, it’s really simple.. ????

    First, you need to have access to your picture on your computer. If it’s on the internet, just download it on your computer.   If you don’t know how to do it, just find you image on Internet, put the cursor of the computer (your mouse) over the image and push the right button on your mouse. Select “Save image as” and save it . You must look where your computer save the image, so you can find it back.

    Once you have your image, and you know how to get it, things become very simple.  Now, go toGoogle.com with your Internet Explorer, or what ever browser you use to surf.  On the Google site, at the top left, you see a menu. Click on “Images“.

    This will bring you to select how to choose an image. You have the option to put an Internet link to the online image, or select to upload and image from the computer. I will only show you how to upload the image, since you already have it on your computer. Now, Click on the Small Camera Icone.

    Select on “Upload an Image“.  Then on “Browse” and find your image on your computer, and “Open

    As an exemple, I did it on this popular Internet Image:

    Now look at the results below:

    As you can see, there’s a lot of results for this image, at least 10 more pages of links. You can click on every links and see who use your photos and more importantly: how they use them.

    If there’s no link, it means Google can’t find anything. It’s probably not available on the Internet, and you are probably the only person using them.

    I’m a photographer and the website where I sell my pictures: Istockphoto and GettyImages are very strict on who and how people use their images. So, this simple Google Image thing is very useful, to find unwanted use of our images.

    I also use this technique to find false account on Facebook with great success. ????

    You can visit my “Facebook False Account Search Page” and see how it can be used.
