I noticed that during my editing breaks I'm using Tineye very often.

Check this site out:

All client's images are from Istock. Nothing new to most of us but I thought someone might be "surprised"


It's pretty sad when companies have to buy faces to match up with their testimonials... Makes you wonder if the testimonials are real!

Sean Locke Photography:
That would be oh, so, against the iStock license.

would you mind to elaborate on that.

Why "would it be" against the iStock license


what does the iStock license actually say? (brief outline would be fine)

From IS license FAQ:

--- Quote ---Prohibited uses for both Standard and Extended license
Use that depicts personal endorsement by model
--- End quote ---

Also, from DT:

--- Quote ---If an Image depicts a person and is used in a manner that implies the use or endorsement of a product or service by that model, you must indicate that the person depicted is a model and used only for illustrative purposes. Under no circumstances, you cannot use an image with a person or more, in a context suggesting he/she or they are endorsing a subject that can be seen as sensitive.

FT is not as clear, but I believe it also means the same:

--- Quote ---he or she shall not: (...)
take any action in connection with the Work that associates it or the creator of the Work, or the persons or property appearing in the Work (if any), with any political, religious, economic or other opinion-based movements or parties.
--- End quote ---
