Idee can see it in your TinEyes

Toronto-based Idee has been until recently a low-profile provider of image recognition services, even though their customer list includes the Associated Press, Agence France-Presse Getty Images and other top-tier clients. But a new search engine the small company has been working on, called TinEye, may change all that. The idea (or Idee) behind TinEye is that you’ll be able to upload an image to the web and then send TinEye out to find every instance of that image on the internet, all in real-time. This steroid enhanced Google Image Search is currently in a private beta, but all indications are that the service will be ready for public launch by this fall.
