I have the following screen shot of an image. How can I find the original? I believe it may have come from Getty Images. I'd like to purchase the original version of this, but don't know where to find it.

enter image description here

The file name may give you a clue. – Emre Dec 19 '12 at 2:57
i had to crop it out of a jpeg. The jpeg was called OPC.PNG (it was renamed so i don't know the oriignal filename) – John Dec 19 '12 at 3:07
Yes, seen similar on istock or dreamstime. Not certain why my spending time looking for it is any better than you spending your time. – Scott Dec 19 '12 at 8:00
Edited to make the question a little more general...we didn't really have a direct question on here that could be answered with "TinEye"! (Apart from but I thought that was different enough to not vote to close this as a duplicate) – Brendan Dec 19 '12 at 15:17

If you think it came from Getty, send them a message and see if they can dig it up for you. They'll be happy to do a little image research if they know you're going to pay.

Cool product called TinEye will do this reverse image lookup for you. Results vary depending on the source image, of course, but it could save you a bit of time.

There's also Google Reverse Image Search (do a normal google image search, then click the camera icon in the input box and upload your image): tineye usually gets more accurate results, but it sometimes finds things TinEye doesn't. Not sure how good either is at parts of a whole image though - in google image reverse, selecting 'Visually similar' may help. – user568458 Dec 19 '12 at 12:56
ooh, google does that too? The things you learn. :) – Lauren Ipsum Dec 19 '12 at 14:21
Both google images and tineye are such useful tools! Thanks a lot guys! – John Dec 19 '12 at 16:38
