I saw this thread and thought it was important to share this bit of information. You can now use Google image search to reverse look up an image to see where it has been posted. If anyone has copied any of your images that you’ve included on your projects or blog posts and posted them elsewhere, you can see it using this simple method.
1) Open up one of your project pages, and also open a tab running Google image search. Click any image of your project and drag it towards the tab running the Google image search. You might see a “ghost” of the image follow your cursor like you see here.
2) The tab should switch over automatically to the Google image search. Then keep dragging the image and let go on top of the search bar where you would normally type some text. Now hit the search button.
3) The image search will now show you any pages where your image has been used, shared, possibly stolen, shared without credit, etc.
I have no idea what could legally be done if your work has been uncredited or passed off as someone else’s. But at least there’s the satisfaction of calling someone on their BS. Or it could be that your project(s) found its way onto some random blog and someone just thought it was cool, and they might be happy to credit you as the creator.
Now you know, and knowing’s half the battle.
