TinEye is a specialized reverse image search engine that was founded by Idee Inc. in 2008. Its primary purpose is to help users find images on the internet by submitting an image instead of using text-based queries. What sets TinEye apart from general search engines like Google is its focus on exact and near-exact matches of the image you provide. The choice between the two depends on your specific needs and concerns. TinEye might be more suitable if you prioritize privacy and are primarily interested in finding direct matches.
