Reverse Image Search API

Reverse Image Search API

Reverse Image Search API helps you quickly discover visually similar images from around the web. Give the image URL and it will show you related images used on other websites and also different sizes of the same photo almost instantly.

API description

About the API:

Reverse image search involves choosing an image and using a search engine to find the same image on other websites. So why would you use reverse image search? Reasons vary, but usually, it's either to authenticate an image, by finding its source or track its uses across the web.


What this API receives and what your API provides (input/output)?

This API will receive the image URL that you want to compare, and this API will provide a list of links where the image could be used and named. 


What are the most common uses cases of this API?

Tracking image use

If you have a website, publish brochures or press releases, or post copyright photographs online, you can assume that your images are going to be re-used. A reverse image search tells you where and when. After that, you can decide whether re-use is legal and appropriate, and whether or not to take action.


Authenticating images

When you see an image in your email or on the web, you don't really know how old it is, or where it originated. A reverse image search helps you to find out.

For example, suppose you are thinking about publishing a picture online or in print. Are you sure the supplier owns it? Is it genuine or has it been doctored? How old is it? How often has it been used before? How much is it really worth?

There are many thousands of cases where a quick reverse image search has, or would have, avoided major mistakes. Sometimes an image is claimed to show a particular event, but it was actually taken earlier, at a different event.


Authenticating people

With reverse image search, you will be able to authenticate if the image that the person is using is, indeed, from him or her. Surprisingly often, contacts have stolen their profile photo from another Facebook or PhotoBucket user. Scammers often use photos of long-forgotten film actors and writers as well
