Description from extension meta

Finds all images and background images laying under the cursor

Image from store Images Under Cursor
Description from store Find and extract all images, pictures, GIFs, background images and videos laying under the cursor, whatever their depth or nesting in the DOM tree. This extension also supports extracting the current frame of canvas elements. This is useful to bypass the HTML, Javascript or CSS tricks some websites use to prevent the user from accessing the page assets — which is plain ridiculous, as there are accessible anyway. Usage: right-click on any image or video, then select “Images under cursor”: a list of found images will appear, that you can open or save. You can also use the Ctrl+Shift+F keyboard shortcut. The shortcut can be customized in Chrome settings. This extension is open-source software licensed under MIT. Visit website link for source.

  • (2021-01-21) Matthew Silva: This extension worked fine on another device, but the name turned grey on a different one and it doesn't work.
  • (2019-06-16) Alex Supremo: I would love to rate it 5 stars, but it doesn't work in many cases. Where the website uses an image for navigation, where you click on the left half to show a previous image, click on the right half to show the next image. (The addon works well in simple cases, but I can easily save such images myself). Please make it better :-)
  • (2018-11-06) Mr. D: Very useful!
  • (2018-05-07) OsanPandaHero: works great. though not listed all images if backgroung-image has more than two urls.
  • (2018-03-12) David Moore: Works great!
  • (2017-06-23) doug b: This is conceptually great. It saves me a lot of time saving images that I find inspiring on the web. However, as of late I've noticed Youtube reloading a lot. I think this introduced that bug. Still a great tool even though you have to disable it when you're not using it.
  • (2017-02-02) Ben Aha: mostly doesnt work.
  • (2016-11-16) Fred Tinsel: Perfect and clean !
  • (2016-10-25) Serhio Luchini: Can u PLZ add feature to SAVE the picture with 1-click (when there's only one background) by default, without entering the menu of BGs?
  • (2016-03-05) Mickaël Thomas: Life-changing
  • (2016-03-05) Thibault Gerondal: Amazing !
