I was not aware of TinEye.com, seems interesting and have APIs but I think if they'll offer a mac menu bar app, integration will be easier and more useful to end users. Maybe ask the TinyEye team to develop something for mac :)

Tineye has a menu bar item for Macs. That isn’t the issue. Here’s the way it would go: you find an image that you might want to use in the future and stick it into Pixa for safe keeping. Then, months later, you decide you want to use it, but you need to check on the rights. TinEye.com is the place where that’s done. There are a couple of others, but TinEye is the top. It lets you know where else the image is used, and if you can find it at Getty, Shutterstock, Almay, BigStock, Deposit, Adobe, or the other rights management sites.
This is very important for people who use a lot of images and don’t want to have one of their videos or works taken down for copyright violation. TinEye.com is what many of us use for that purpose.
It would be really helpful if this could be done within Pixa—select the image in Pixa, and then have a hotkey that does an automatic TinEye.com search. Otherwise, you have to get the image from inside Pixa and into TinEye.com.
