Overview

A powerful reverse image search tool, with support for various search engines, such as Google, Bing, Yandex, Baidu and TinEye.

Search by Image is a browser extension that makes effortless reverse image searches possible, and comes with support for more than 30 search engines. Search by Image is an open source project made possible thanks to a community of awesome supporters. If you'd like to support the continued development of the extension, please check out https://armin.dev/go/patreon The extension helps journalists and researchers verify the authenticity of images, and assists in the identification of false information on social media. Search by Image is also popular among photographers, helping artists explore how their work is shared on the web, while shoppers find it valuable for discovering similar products at discounted prices. The extension enables you to search for images from the context menu and the browser toolbar with the help of a diverse set of reverse image search engines, which can be toggled and reordered from the extension's options. Visit the wiki for the full list of supported search engines. https://github.com/dessant/search-by-image/wiki/Search-engines Images positioned at the selected area are detected regardless of how they were embedded in the page. The extension also supports searching with images from your device, images from private sites, and captured areas of the page. A handful of search modes are offered that serve different use cases. The search mode can be set independently for the context menu and the browser toolbar from the extension's options. Search modes: • Select URL: select an image on the page and search with the image URL. This is the default search mode. • Select image: select an image on the page and search with the image file. This search mode is preferred for sites which do not allow the direct linking of images, such as private sites. • Capture: search with a captured area of the page. • Browse: search with an image from your device. Pasting images from the clipboard is also supported. • URL: search with an image URL. The "Allow access to file URLs" option must be enabled to search with local images opened in a tab. Visit the chrome://extensions page and open the extension's details to find the option. The image you select during a search is sent to the requested service, visit the extension's privacy policy for more information. The extension is also available for Edge and Safari: https://github.com/dessant/search-by-image#readme Reviews are not monitored for bug reports, please use GitHub for issues and feature requests. https://github.com/dessant/search-by-image

Why is the "Search" option no longer appearing when I right-click an image? It looks like it's been replaced by a convoluted process involving manually selecting the image after opening the extension menu, something which not only takes more clicks, but also feels like it could simply have been an alternative way of doing it, rather than a replacement.

I have always loved this extension as a useful alternative to Google Lens, however the Google Image search results stopped showing the image dimensions in their preview. I mainly use this tool to find the highest quality version of an image so for now I have to go back to Google Lens which does show image dimensions though unfortunately usually yields less results.

The instructions you put on github for making Google Images search work again do not work. I get a webpage that says "The setting that you are looking for is not available for your account." when I visit that Google link you provided. What a shame. Man I hate Google
