. I took a look at it and bookmarked it.
With TinEye, you can just drag an image onto the Web page, and it will search for a source on the Web. So I dragged an image I knew was on my own
site, and what it found was a thumbnail of the same image, which is also on my site, and then it stopped searching once it found that, correctly
naming my site and the filename I had given the thumbnail. That's what I call a very successful test, since it proved it could find a match according
to the image, not the filename, not to mention exhibiting extreme easy of use.
Then I took an OP photo from an ATS UFO thread, removed the "UFO," and tried that, on the theory that some people find nice pix, add "UFOs" and
start threads. No luck on that one, but it's a weapon in my holster for future use when I see something outrageously suspicious on these premises.
I recall one that demonstrated a very high level of photographic skill and very low level of skill in adding the "UFO." In that case, it would have
been nice to find the original photo without the addition and post the link in that thread.
