What we offer you

Image search

Visual Rights Group's reverse image tracking technology can scan and match your entire archive online , even cropped, mirrored and retouched images. Whether your collection is ten thousand or ten million images, we have unlimited capability. You can start by sending us a sample of your imagery and we’ll provide you with a free detailed report.


Visual Rights Group filters your results to your specifications and our high standards. We combine our intelligent automated processes with manual filtering that removes mismatches, whitelisted companies you designate, territories where we don’t work and websites that can’t be contacted. These curated results save you time when you’re reviewing the results.

Customized Reporting

After we’ve scanned your images you’ll receive a link to your results on our user-friendly dashboard. You’ll be able to see where your images are being used at a glance and designate whether the usage is licensed or not. We regularly rescan your archive to determine other possible infringements.

New Revenues

Working with Visual Rights Group helps you protect your assets, recover lost royalties and generate new revenues. Outsource policing your images to us so you can focus on what you’re good at: being creative. You’ll save time and effort and get the money you’re rightfully owed.
