Hello guys!
I'm trying to find my sold images, its always fun to see your images being used.

In the past I've used tineye but recently changed to image search by google.
I login into an agency, make printscreen of one of my images and placed it on google...

Unfortunately sometimes the results aren't the best, so that's why I'm opening this topic:

How do you guys find your images?

Many thanks in advance.

You can drag and drop, no need to make screen dumps. TinEye and Google Image Search are the two best options. I know of no other way.

sometimes a simple google search (e.g. google for: "yourUserName" shutterstock -site:shutterstock.com) will give you some hits.
Obviously that only shows those hits where somebody correctly attributes the images on their webpage, but surprisingly you can find quite a lot that way.

also search for "copyright your name" and "copyright your sitename" and use the copyright symbol (cut and paste it) and the word "copyright" but you have to eliminate via search or wade through heaps of microstock site pages too.

What Browser? I tried FF, not there, tried Chrome, not there? Or does that have something to do with setting Google as the default search engine? Mine is not Google.

Yes, easy way is open a second window with http://www.google.com/imghp then drag and drop.

Right click -> search google for this image

Ez pz.

Thank you guys for all your help.
In the past I've used the "sitename + username" or something similar but wasn't very effective.

The google images drap & drop solution seems to be the best one since imageraider is paid, isn't it?

Many thanks once more.

It's an add-on you need to install to Firefox.

"Who stole my pictures" is another Add on for FF and offers far more search possabilities. Link:  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/who-stole-my-pictures/

Thanks for sharing addon. I install and tested it.  It search google, tinyeye, yandex and bing.  I search one of my DT image, google and tinyeye shows results from some microstock sties but yandex and bing results were 0 images.

Ditto the thanks for sharing that addon. I also installed it with FF but now can't find the way to test/use it.

Can somebody point me in the right direction to do that?

Thanks again.

Yes apparently I don't have the right add-on. Which one gives the simple "search Google for this image" option. Here's what I see right now. The Before...



Martha: you right click on an image and it shows the search link.

I think this is the answer. It's a Google Add-On.

Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dajedkncpodkggklbegccjpmnglmnflm?hl=en&hc=search&hcp=main

Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/googlesearch-by-image/

OK that was it, I installed both.  ;D "Who stole my Pictures" is nice, looks at multiple places. Last link above, is "Search Image On Google"

The After...

Hey, Pete, thanks!

Yes, that worked. It took me a minute or two to realize that the addon was pulling up new tabs in my FF browser, but once I cracked the code on that, it surely does work.

Very cool addition to the toolbox.  8)

Martha, I'm sorry, was away from keyboard, but I think, you've got already the answer. Check out the right mouse button when you pointing on a picture in FF.

Wasn't me, I just found the details. You can thank Sean Locke for bringing it up. I hadn't seen the add-on and I usually don't fish for them. I also don't usually search for who used my images, I'm just happy to see the money.  :)

Then... thanks, Sean!  It is a neat addon, and I appreciate your sharing it with us.

I do like seeing where my stuff winds up, even if not everything is properly credited to me.

I found my FILE be used by some website but how can I know Which websites have paid for my Picture. And which websites did not paid to me?

Some buyers would upload some picture they bought to some FREE-DOWNLOAD websites, to attract people who is seeking files to do their own design.

I have found so many files could be download from a FREE-DOWNLOAD website, as the same time those files was sold on SS,IS and so on.

What can I do, if I found my file was put there to be download for free?

That will you never know, unless you are an exclusiv contributor and your agency gives you all information you need  for following your sales.

If you are iS exclusive, you have to ask them to get it removed.
This may happen quickly, slowly, or not at all.

If not exclusive, and the site is based in the US, you could send them a DMCA, otherwise you could strongly, but politely, insist that they take down your file.
Be sure, though, that they are giving your specific files away free.
Some of these sites are a form of bait and switch. They promise free files, and there probably are some, but if they click on an agency file, you get taken to the agency to purchase the file and they get some sort of 'partnership' kickback.
Really, it's a can of worms which RF opened up, and which can't now be returned to the can.
