  • (2021-01-18) Sillysack Bottowski: Works perfectly as of januray 18, 2021. Definitely not a bot..
  • (2021-01-15) Sean Sprague: Hi! Thanks so much for this. It's really so much better than what is being offered. However I noticed something changed recently. As I cycle through thumbnail images using arrows on keyboard and go progressively through the search images, now the extension window/expanded image does not track with where I am on the browser window. IE The extension window gets pushed further and further out of view down the page and out of view as the page seems not to recognize the position of which images i'm clicking through. I can scroll the page down to view the extension/ expanded image, but as soon as click the arrow key forward it returns me to the top of the thumbnail page with the extension once again out of view. I'm using this on latest version of google chrome browser on mac os.
  • (2020-12-29) Jad OS: Fantastic.
  • (2020-12-12) Andrew Smart: Love this extension, but there's a limit to how many photos I can move through set to 24, only a minor inconvenience but why does it do this?
  • (2020-12-05) Hatsune Miku: Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! Why did google change the type of google images?
  • (2020-12-02) I Give Up: Genius. Thank you!!!!!
  • (2020-11-27) Fatih: IT SOLVES THE NEW UI PROBLEM
  • (2020-11-13) Remi Sidhu: AMAZING
  • (2020-10-29) kond: Works as intended!!
  • (2020-10-28) Windrush80: First impression is works well. best alternative to the other popular one. Because of the inconsistency of the other, i tried this . Works. so will stick with this for the foreseeable future. . hope the dev has some integrity and protects his/her/their user base. Potential use : collage art, photomanipulations, design references and clip art searches. The google image can be collected fast with a right click save-as. basically a productivity tool for various artists . Often high resolution images are desired. When the image search went away, it forced you to go into a website to look for said image. Often a vain pursuit . This extension reduces time spent looking for that higher res image, so you can start editing or whatever.
  • (2020-10-20) Кирилл Фролов: the Descriptions of images are missing, can you please find out what's wrong?
  • (2020-10-07) Cache Manager: So thankful this exists, google ruined their image search making pictures awkwardly appear to the right. Thanks Rene Ae!
  • (2020-09-29) Dario Cavegn: Simply brilliant. "Unfixes" what didn't need to be fixed in the first place.
  • (2020-09-20) John Viverito: Works. Their is a delay whenever an image is clicked. It is only a second or two but in this environment it feels like forever. I confirmed (on my machine anyways) by turning on and off. New google images is IMMEDIATE in response. This has an unfortunate delay.
  • (2020-09-08) Gary Talbott: Google screwed up their image search preview making it way to small. This extension effectively fixes it so the preview is big enough to clearly see.
  • (2020-09-07) R. Hellsing: Thank you for this extension, the new one is burning my eyes
  • (2020-09-06) Carlos Alberto: Muito bom, bem melhor que o modo atual. Uma pena que saiu a etiqueta de Coleções eu usava bastante.
  • (2020-09-05) Alex: Please add collections support.
  • (2020-09-04) Andrew Delenhovskiy: Не обновлюється, 99% часу не працює правильно, або не працює взагалі, розробник не реагує на заклики виправити помилки.. не рекомендую.
  • (2020-09-03) Hou: Been using it for a while, it actually works, couldn't ask more.
  • (2020-09-03) Galih Priambodo: Great now I can download those HQ images that were used to be in thumbnails only
  • (2020-09-02) Drifting Fox: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! I can't BELIEVE Google has not reverted this back. Hands down it is the dumbest, WORST mistake in the history of Google. You, kind person, have brought us back to calm logic and sanity.
  • (2020-08-25) Vanessa: Fixes a problem Google refuses to believe it created. Wish I could find some Ad Manager fixes, because they screwed that up too!! Extension works and restores the preview to UNDER the selection not on the right awkwardly. Google - get it together!
  • (2020-08-16) James Hiner: When I open up an image on Google Images, the name of the website shows up instead of the description of the webpage, can you please find out what's wrong and make it a bug fix for 0.3.1?
  • (2020-07-30) Horacio Com H: I really hate the new layout of google images. I started using yandex images because of that... Thank you for make this perfect extension, now I can use google images again.
  • (2020-07-20) Anonymous: Excellent extension. 1 request to the developer is on high DPI screens, show the images a little larger still. On my 17 inch laptop which has high-res, high DPI screen, I've turned on display scaling, zoom etc but the image preview shown is still a little small with plenty of space above and below it wasted. Around 1.5 inches on top and bottom of the image unused. It would be nice (even if the original Google Image search didn't have it), if the image was scaled to fit the vertical resolution/height of the screen.
  • (2020-07-19) Alex Boudesteijn: Maybe my favorite extension. There's a small problem where every once in a while it won't go to the next image with the arrow keys, but nothing that can't be fixed by the click of a mouse.
  • (2020-07-18) Oink Boink: Not working with Opera GX. Author should check it and make some kind of ajdustments to support GX. Edit: Got it working again like a charm, thanks to Rene AeJul suggestion,as below: ''Rene AeJul 10, 2020 right click on the extension in the toolbar and click 'manage extension... ' then scroll and enable 'allow access to search page results' e.g. https://i.imgur.com/5lk2BfQ.png -- this setting is off by default it appears and is blocking the extension from working''
  • (2020-07-17) Jezza Lenko: thanks so much for this.....
  • (2020-07-13) Colt&Glock Collector: It opens double tabs for every image I click
  • (2020-07-05) Xeno Dragon: My only criticism is that the Related Images section seems to be broken. The only way I can get it to work is to use the "search by image" function, then clicking on visually similar images and searching through there.
  • (2020-06-29) GTV's: Nagyon jó
  • (2020-06-29) Alejandro Castiblanco: GREAT you fixed what Google damaged, that side panel was horrible, also if you used the vertical screen it was useless
  • (2020-06-27) Peppermint: Very wonderful initially, however it appears google has repeated there previous attempt at ruining this extension via an update, and it no longer works.
  • (2020-04-14) Nick Alanta: It's work perfect in my chrome (ver 81) right now on Feb 2020, thank you very much!
  • (2020-04-11) Brian Pickavance: Yes, yes, yes... thank you for fixing what Google messed up!
  • (2020-04-09) James Hiner: I like it but some pictures are blurry
  • (2020-04-07) Ben Viau: Wow. After Google's update, I click on a thumbnail and am presented with... the same thumbnail I literally just clicked on. But now when I hover over it, it reassures me the dimensions are much larger. Fine, I'll click again. Oh wait, it's redirected me to the source website, which almost NEVER actually even contains the image, let alone the full size. Lemme go back to the search. 20 minutes later I still can't find a SINGLE F***ING WAY to view the image (ok obviously I can view the source HTML, pull the URL out of the img tag, and use that... If I wanted to age a hundred years every time I wanted to find a few images.) But now with your plugin, this extremely rudimentary feature works as if Google had at least one brain among its decision makers. Congratulations, you're more capable while working for free than the entire staff at a multi billion dollar corporation.
  • (2020-03-31) Nathan: pretty nice.
  • (2020-03-22) Blackheart Dark: Good because it adds back the dimensions. Please add a "search by image" button to it though
  • (2020-03-21) Dmitry Shevchenko: FInally! Thank you
  • (2020-03-19) Bazilick: Вернуло всё обратно, обожаю это приложение ^_^
  • (2020-03-17) Jamie Peary: Working again
  • (2020-03-16) Young Chen: GREAT TOOL, Google sucks about the image right place display change. THANK YOU!
  • (2020-03-14) Nicholas Morano: it's amazing but stopped working today. Google is the worst.
  • (2020-03-13) Giuseppe Guida: Ottima!! Thank you!
  • (2020-03-11) MAX GOLD: Сделали для людей больше чем гугл.
  • (2020-03-09) JustChange MyNameDamnit: Please provide an option for the design and the pixel size on each picture. Personally I only wish to have the image resolution shown in the corner all the time (instead of a whole bar only on hover), and I don't necessarily want to get the old search layout back. Thanks.
  • (2020-03-05) i7 4770: Thank you. The update that made Google Images smaller when you click on them is absolutely the single biggest example of UI failures I can think of. Cool that some Google employee could be busy with this and maybe made a promotion. But it affects billions of users and I'm very sure it is not a well-considered decision at all. Just like the Google Search bar that shifts the whole page down one second after you hit a search. Goes to show that we rely on Google a bit too much, it is a risky single point of failure. But well.. now I can finally expand images to their full size again so I can look at them in full glory!
