Only "Report crime"? Why not a "find crime" button?

There have been quite a few things about image theft on the boards recently. I was wondering about this small feature being added.
Why not have a button below every image that opens up another window and automatically searches similar images via Google images?

People have written about their not being able to drag images into the Google search window, many don't yet know about the image search feature I guess. This would be a good feature and makes it easy for everyone to search with just a click without having to do any drag-drop operations that are often incompatible (and not possible on many mobile devices). It also saves time for those who have many uploads but are still quite new.
The downside: It can direct buyers to other sites who'd just search for it on Google images.
Solution, only let exclusive contributors have the feature. The button should be there when you go to DT.com/uploads.php
I guess there are few major buyers who are also exclusive contributors. This thing could be something the site can enlist under extra features for exclusive contributors. The resources to implement this shouldn't be heavy either I guess.

There are some browser extensions and plugins for this, see tineye for example, or others similar.

I know.
But for mobile devices too? I don't think people know. So I guessed this might be a good feature.

There are reverse image search applications for mobile devices too :) I don't know if it will be useful to make a reverse image search on a mobile device, I mean what is the hurry, just wait until you get home LOL

Still, I understand what you mean. You want a button directly in the DT website...so I still want a lightbox counter in the uploads page. Maybe next Christmas hehehe

That's not good. haha!
If little changes really make a difference, we should probably stick to the little changes.
Your lightbox counter is a bad idea because it's nothing to boast about. MY idea is better. ;)

The only problem is, some might be tempted to use it as "Commit crime" button. You need a level 5 image, just press the button and most probably you'd get a nice, free version of it free of cost. Lol

Christmas for the buyers. Not you or me, even though our ideas are great.

Yes this is how you finish a conversation by your own self LOL

...and about the little changes; remember that you should start from the big ones, like building a crowded portfolio, then worry about the little ones :)))

By the way, your last "commit crime" explanation is a very dangereous one, so I think you really should remove it before people see it.
