Find a better quality version of an image with TinEye

Let’s suppose I have this image on my computer:

Note: Remember that even though you find a wonderful image on the net like the one shown above you must first determine whether the artist has rendered it into the public domain (free usage) or holds a copyright to the image. Please respect photographers’ copyrights when considering using these images. Often an email or comment on their site asking for permission to use an image will be readily accommodated by the artist. And, gee, wouldn’t you like to know that people find your work appealing?

I really like this picture but can’t put it as a wallpaper because the resolution is too small. How do I find the same picture, just with bigger resolution?

One solution is to use TinEye which is a “reverse picture search” service where you can upload a picture and you’ll get results of the same or similar pictures, usually with different resolutions. I’ve tried uploading this image there and guess what:

Yep, TinEye found a same image with a same resolution like my screen. Pretty neat.
