How To Find Out if Images Have Been Stolen

Are you curious if your images and/or written works have been stolen?  Here are some sources to use online to track your intellectual works.   If you want to narrow down the selection, I suggest starting with the images most pinned on Pinterest that you’ve taken and going from there as that’s one of the most typical sources for stolen images.

1.  Google Reverse Image Search.  This is my default go-to for looking out sources of images.  You click on the camera icon in the search bar and upload the image.  Google then brings up the sources for the image that you searched for.

2.  TinEye.  This works in a similar way as Google Reverse Image Search and the results are usually the same but not always.

3.  Copyscape.  This works in the same way as the above but for written words instead of pictures.
