My number 1 tip for checking where else a stock image has already been used...

You've found the perfect stock image to use for your latest campaign. But do you know how to check where a stock image has already been used on the internet?

This could be valuable information to have. You don't want to use something that's been utilised already by the world and his dog - you want to be different, to stand out, right?

You also don't want to inadvertently use an image that's already made a name for itself in some questionable way.

So what's the solution? There's a great tool that let's you perform a reverse image look up. Basically you can head over to a website, upload a screen shot of the image in question, and it will come right back at you with a list of every web address where that image already features online. Useful!

Here's the website to give it a go: https://www.tineye.com/
