Identifying stock photos with the TinEye API
Publishers and designers can accumulate huge libraries of images that have been used across many of their projects. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to keep records of where all of these images came from and under what terms they are licensed. TinEye can be used to manually search for images one at a time, but if you have hundreds or thousands of images in your library that approach becomes impractical. Fortunately, we have a solution to this problem: the TinEye API.
We've written a step-by-step introduction on how to identify stock photos using the TinEye API with example code in several different languages. The examples use our API sandbox, so you don't need an account to try it out. However, if you'd like to get real results you can sign up by following the steps in our getting started section.
