Cite That Image Correctly!

By Alma Row


Fair Use guidelines give educators a lot of freedom to use copyrighted material, but all too often Google Images is incorrectly cited as the source of an image. Along comes TinEye to the rescue! After either uploading an image (or supplying its URL), this site will scan for other pictures that electronically match the picture-in-questions characteristics. This program is in beta form right now and you must request an account, but there is a Internet Explorer and Firefox plug-in that will allow you to right-click any image and get the source information. No longer does one have to abandon a picture because it can't be cited properly.
