Description from store 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 for the extension 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, such as Bing Images.

  • (2023-02-02) Johnny Hill: Great and useful app! I only use Google, Yandex and Tineye as the options to search, the rest are damned useless sites, which isn't the app's fault, of course.
  • (2023-01-20) Crow Armbrust: Only flaw is that it doesn't work with local files opened in browser.
  • (2023-01-19) Артём Мезин: Перестало работать / Doesn't work now
  • (2023-01-09) Skandaliczny: Najlepsze
  • (2023-01-01) 녹두콩로봇: 아주 좋다! 평가를 할만큼 뛰어난 성능을 가지고 있습니다. 이런 프로그램을 이용할 수 있어서 감사합니다.
  • (2022-12-26) Nguyễn Hoa Lư: The best at what it does. After installing, right click on it -> Options -> Context Menu -> Search from context menu -> Check the sources you want. Basically the most convenient extension I used so far.
  • (2022-12-25) ANIMkka: Please fix mail.ru search
  • (2022-12-15) Benjamin Peng (Ben): The best extension in this regard. It also works with local file (make sure you enable the permision in settings) which is a must to have for me.
  • (2022-12-13) Punkt Komma: Google Lens is trash, this brings back the original Google Image Search that we all want and rely on. Silly of them to remove the flag from the hidden options
  • (2022-12-03) Riaz Ali: only one that's worked for me google lens/image search disappeared, other author's addons won't work
  • (2022-12-03) BLOOD_MOON_1: Amazing.
  • (2022-12-03) Дарина Лысакова: Увы, не работает.
  • (2022-12-03) TAM LD: Không hoạt động
  • (2022-11-30) Aedon: Best
  • (2022-11-23) o: I loved it until google killed it with google lens, such a shame.
  • (2022-11-23) Mariano Roque: Last two days I've been getting "Search by image is unavailable. Please try again in a few hours" when I search in Google.
  • (2022-11-23) Marika Charalambous: Last few days I've been getting "Search by image is unavailable. Please try again in a few hours" when I search in Google.
  • (2022-11-23) ZegarmistrzSwiatla: Google: "Image search is not available. Please try again in a few hours."
  • (2022-11-18) Jason De la Cruz: Simplemente la mejor extensión en su tipo, supera a la de TinEye por incluir más buscadores, incluso muchas que ni conocía de su existencia. Lo único que sugiero es que mejore su compatibilidad con Enhanced Image Viewer (https://tinyurl.com/y8paejjc), porque a veces al momento de buscar al hacer clic derecho en la imagen en una pestaña a parte no funciona.
  • (2022-11-17) 田佳鑫(阿鑫): 这个插件可以选择本地图片进行搜索吗?
  • (2022-11-16) M: Единственное на данный момент расширение которое ищет по гугл после их изменений, все другие расширения перестали искать по гугл
  • (2022-11-14) Michael Wong: Love this add-on but recently the yandex search just opens the image in a new tab.
  • (2022-11-14) 明: 五星好评 继续开发更多好用的插件
  • (2022-11-05) света ивановна: перестали в Яндекс браузере все похожие работать
  • (2022-10-28) Егор Вор: Thank you for creating this extension, I love it very much, and have been using it for a long time
  • (2022-10-27) John Moya: Thank you so much! Google Lens doesn't do anything that I want to do. Sometimes it is useful but most of the time I'm looking for a higher resolution of an image. I feel like what I want to do is bad or something and being punished for it. I'm just trying to find the images that I want. Someone posts a thumbnail or lower quality image that I like? I want to find a bigger picture! Simple. Or I want to find the source of a comic or something else I saw. Now people are being cheated out of a good feature because they have to take an extra step to get to it. I wish changes to good things like this would stop, even YouTube has done this with removing the dislike button and I just don't understand why things can't just be left alone.
  • (2022-10-02) Янъ Русъ: По справедливости этому расширению нужно было бы влепить 1 звезду из 5, так как из 8 сайтов изображения обрабатывают только 4 (50%). Но подкупает то единственное обстоятельство, что расширение «страшно» экономит время, если бы без него поиск изображений пришлось осуществлять вручную. И только по этому я ставлю 3 звезды из 5.
  • (2022-09-26) Anthony G: Tried to find this picture that came up on my lock screen/bing site. This is the only extension that worked. TY *Here is the picture I was searching for btw( Kameiwa Cave in Shimizu Keiryu Park, Kimitsu, Japan )
  • (2022-09-20) AND: Не работает, а разрешения требует сомнительно много
  • (2022-09-09) Nocturnal Owl Digitalist: I came across this addon "Search by Image" after being recommended and google and chrome losing search by image feature but the dev of this addon thinks everybody using chrome, google and bing. There is no option for duckduckgo image search, brave search image, mojeek, startpage search image, you.com image search, ecosia image search, swisscow image search. Can dev consider adding that too? I use brave, edge and opera and in opera addon seems to work 50 percent only. Your addon works in kiwi browser where it can be improved. Thanks.
  • (2022-09-08) ambasador marlin: i will give you 10 stars if i can
  • (2022-09-07) Cheat Game Mobile (Tứ Bảnh 2K3): Sử dụng có chút phiền phức vì cửa sổ của tiện ích hiện lên mỗi lần tìm kiếm
  • (2022-08-22) Isaiah Reinke: Google took away a good feature to replace it with their useless lens; this extension brought it back.
  • (2022-08-13) 中原中也: Ужасно
  • (2022-08-12) Chris Fink: Suddenly can't search by images anymore on google. Error is "The URL doesn't refer to an image, or the image is not publicly accessible." This is even for images on public sites. Looks like Google is blocking the API maybe?
  • (2022-07-25) waseem farooq: Totally awsome... it make my work 20 time faster... thank you thank you thank you
  • (2022-06-14) 木昔朋: 我是中国大陆用户,最近点百度总是提示图片上传失败

  • (2022-05-26) Chelsea Rose: so much care put into this, thanks so much to the devs
  • (2022-05-16) RJ Deng: 很好,还以为只有Edge有呢
  • (2022-05-11) Nobody Here anymore: New permissions are not okay.
  • (2022-05-10) HoLyzPiNoyZ: Not safe anymore, idk why devs decide to add this new addition. EDIT: they reverted the permission after many people requested it and now its gone.
  • (2022-05-06) Alex Fonseca: TOP
  • (2022-05-02) Aleks Ivanov: Exactly what I need
  • (2022-04-29) Shenmue Is Life: I have been using it over one year now and I recommend. You can choose among 40 different preselected search engines for your right click context.
  • (2022-04-28) Sam Kim: Super-invasive permissions are now required. Including reading/changing all data on all websites, and snooping on your copy/paste. Telltale signs that this is going the way of the Great Suspender—an originally helpful extension that exploited its large user base to quietly become adware/malware.
  • (2022-04-16) Ronaldo Bazinga: clipboard permissions was a late april fool's joke
  • (2022-04-14) Volkan Yılmaz: işimi görüyor.
  • (2022-04-11) Kath Fair: Removed due to newly required clipboard permissions for a rare use case
