How to not reblog plagiarists

erischord:

I used to moderate in one of those huge digital artwork collecting groups on Deviantart.com. Basically, we looked through hundreds of submissions every week and denied most of them - for what? Plagiarizing. It used to be hard to tell whether an image was plagiarized. We’d have to look through their gallery for a variety of factors like artistic development and consistency. Now, it’s much easier.

Let me introduce you to this amazing thing called: Tineye.com
It is a reverse-image search engine.
And comes with great add-ons for Firefox/Chrome/etc. What it does is take the base image and compare it to the billions of images floating out there on the net. It is like turnitin.com but for images. It is not perfect, and it can make mistakes, but it is one of the better tools out there. It will catch Photoshop filters and crappy paint-overs.

Sometimes, I see work on my dashboard that bothers me because not only will the artist claim it as her own painting, but also, not link to references where the image was copied almost line-for-line from. Yes, lots of people are talented at photomanips, and most tumblr manips and edits are not properly referenced (that for another day) but there’s a huge difference between saying something is a collage (manip) of photographs and saying that you painted something (and without references, you also claim original concept and execution). As I am not prepared to go on some crusade to educate every person on what counts as photomanip, what counts as paintover, and what is just plain plagiarism, I’d like to request all of you out there, if someone claims they painted something that looked too good to be true - please Right click the image > Search image on Tineye, and CHECK if it really is too good to be true before reblogging.

Thank you.

Actually, please do reblog it - Tineye will help you SOURCE the post. And everyone is happy.
