How to see if a site stole your photo

In a previous blog, I discussed bloggers stealing photos. What if curiosity has you wondering the existence of a website illegally using one of your photos? Google possesses the right technology for that, and it’s free.

First, go to Google Images.

Next, click on the camera image located in the search section.  “Search by image” pops up.

Next, you could either use the photo’s URL or upload the photo itself.

I used this photo of the smiling brunette.

The next image shows the various pages one would find using the photo.  Plus at the bottom, one would find similar images of a smiling brunette.  Also, like mine, the images are close-ups.

Of all the websites visited, the last one at the bottom I didn’t recognize.  In other words, somebody stole it.

What do you do when this happens?  I mention that in my thieving blogger blog.
