We suggest a method for probing the quark content of the photon using [Formula presented] tagging at high energy [Formula presented] and [Formula presented] colliders. We find that heavy quark tagging provides a sensitive and effective probe of the quark content of the photon especially in the low [Formula presented] region where the various models differ the most. This process is complementary to others that have been studied in the literature and can contribute to more precise determinations of quark and gluon distributions inside the photon.
