  2. Look for an application called ‘Snaptube’ or go to the official page to download it
  3. When its installation is finished, enter the Instagram application of your mobile

What is the way to find out who uploaded that photo to Instagram?

Once you have the Instagram image in the Google Photos application, you only need to do the search to see the similarities with that image and who has uploaded it as well. The application to use for this process is a so-called ‘TinEye’ tool.

  4. Finally, click on where it says ‘Search’

When the search is done, you will be able to see if that image was uploaded on Instagram or if there are certain similarities to it. In case there are certain similarities, that will show up in the final search result. Sometimes the web may get stuck, if this happens you just have to reload the page and do the search again.

In case you see certain similarities, you can start following that person on Instagram or even contact them in this way.

How to find a person’s social networks?

The easiest way to find a person’s social media is by using the TinEye platform. Before we have explained how to search for an image within the Instagram platform. To locate all the social networks of a person you just have to put a photo of him on the TinEye website and see all the results.

In the results that the TinEye produces, you will be able to access the exact location of that photo . You will only have to access the location of all those photos and see the username of that person in each of the different social networks. By the way, it is important that you know that there is a way to share all your photos from Google Photos with someone else .
