How to : Find Art Thieves

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 3, 2013, 12:12 PM
Please :+fav: this journal, so that a lot of people can read it.

I noticed that a lot of people don't know how to search for their photos on the internet, so here is a short tutorial. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do about art thieves, but i still think it is important to look out for them.

1. visit

2. Go to the page of the photo you want to search and click "show image"

3. Copy the Link and paste it into google.

4. This page should open, click "search by image".

5. Now you can browse trough the results.

6. The less results the happier you should be.

EDIT : You can also use websites like : and
This was pointed out to me by some people, personally i have no experience with them, but i am sure that they work too. :aww:

Install Search by Google plugin and get the search option in the right click menu, much quicker. Not only for art theft, but also for identified orphaned art etc.

Read or die at 6:53 P.M. tonight. 5 years ago a 4 year old girl was shot and killed. She now seeks her revenge by finding people to kill. She wants others to feel her pain so at 3:15 A.M., while you are sleeping, she sneaks into your room and takes a shotgun and shoots you many times. If you don't re-post this to 10 photos she will come and kill you tonight with a gun at 3:15 A.M. If you re-post this to 15 other photos she will not get you and you will have the best day ever tomorrow. You will either find a $100 dollar bill or get kissed. You have 15 minutes. The little girl is waitin
