I last tested Tineye and Google image a few months ago. I had much greater success with Google Image than with Tineye. Also keep in mind that if the copy is altered - obviously as in flipped horizontally or vertically, or not so obviously - colour to bw or vice versa, or major colour changes, etc., the copy will not be detected even by Google. Also keep in mind that not all photos out there are indexed by either process, but Google (being Google) provides a significantly higher hit rate in all my tests.
