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. 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

  • (2023-11-14) Belay Mulat: excellent!
  • (2023-10-18) Hambone Designs: Yeah y'all are goated for this one. Even works for local images once you enable URL's!
  • (2023-10-18) overkillx7: Absolutely love this extension but after the update it no longer functions or do anything at all! This extension helped me find some serious obscure images, but I guess it's time to learn Dally-E. I hope you fix this Dev man, bc this extension is awesome!!!
  • (2023-10-17) BosApollo: Great extension but where is the google lens option? It disappeared/
  • (2023-09-27) 奢望那缕阳光: Something went wrong. Searching on Google Lens has failed.
  • (2023-09-23) Anonymous A.: September 2023 Update: Updated from 3-4 stars. No recent windows from this extension of the extension's creator, "armin.dev", panhandling for money. I really want to like this extension. Hopefully a statement gets posted that confirms the begging messages are gone. _________ Original review: A good extension. However, the author breaks the browsing experience to beg for money multiple times, ruining an otherwise quality experience. It would otherwise be a 5/5, but it's not for that reason. 3/5
  • (2023-09-17) Mitchell Opatowsky: It's hard to give this app enough praise. To echo others in the review forum, "Google Lens" and now the "Search Image with Google" are absolutely pathetic. Google's forays into reverse image search, epitomized by the lackluster Google Lens and an archaic Google Images interface, feel like a quantum physicist failing at basic arithmetic. The experience is a digital cul-de-sac, often leading to recursive journeys that produce false positives more appropriate for a surrealist art gallery than having any practical utility for finding the images you need. The prioritization of low-quality images on Google Images in general is a 15+ year old design mistake that's never been fixed, it's like offering a drinking straw when one requests a telescope—a pitiful mismatch of supply and demand in the quest for clarity. In stark contrast, the Chrome extension "Search by Image" shines as an example of what a focused tool can achieve. The user experience is so fluid it's like shifting from a horse-drawn carriage to a Ferrari; navigating the interface feels like feasting on a Michelin-star meal after years of enduring fast food. It's effectively the Hubble Telescope to Google's child's binoculars. Where Google miserably fails, "Search by Image" steps in to fill the vacuum, becoming an oasis in a barren desert of so much unnecessary wasted time.

  • (2023-07-28) Gaurav.: love it

  • (2023-07-07) Παναγιώτης Σιώμος: Excellent extension thank you Please add freepik at search engines!!! ( recently, freepik add search by image option)
  • (2023-06-18) Christopher Rojas: Google Lens 1 Stars Search by Image extension 5 Stars
  • (2023-06-04) ming Moo: Image Search Optionsからこちらに乗り換え。 オプションで二次元画像検索やIQDBなども使えるので無断転載イラストのソースを検索するのにも便利。開発者が最新の状態に更新し続ける限り最強だと思います。
  • (2023-05-29) Ray F: I had to download an extension because google is dumb enough to disable their perfectly fine and working image search and replaced it with a terrible and useless PoS called "Google Lens." Thank you for this.
  • (2023-05-24) 계아: 영어장벽은 10중에서 1 이 프로그램 이해하면 매우 좋은 프로그램입니다. 여러가지 쓸 수 있어서 좋습니다.
  • (2023-05-17) 王雁山: 终于找到了可以搜索图片且精确的扩展了!
  • (2023-05-16) Ayano Sakura: Literally the only thing that has worked for me to bring back the old google image search!!! The current google lens feature is useless as it doesn't bring up the option to find different sizes of the same image and also provides you with less results that are just randomly listed. I do have #enable-lens-standalone disabled in flags though which might've helped the extension, but who knows. I'm just happy this works, with this, I can finally do my job properly!
  • (2023-05-09) たぬき: Google画像検索の強引とも思える改悪が続く中、本当に助かります。 こちらの拡張機能もいつまで使えるのか心配です…。
  • (2023-05-04) M P S: Perfecta
  • (2023-04-28) Ding Dong: I really loved it and the lens option is the most useful to me till now.
  • (2023-03-29) daw ad: Google и Yandex работают, остальной функционал вторичен, потому 10 / 10
  • (2023-03-20) Korazowsky: The best of the best, do chuja pana.
  • (2023-03-15) David Hughes: Not working again for me since last chrome update...is there a fix again?
  • (2023-03-05) William Oliveira dos Santos: It would be interesting if you could import the settings, which also includes my search engine choices and their order.
  • (2023-03-03) Hake S: A true godsend. It's actually a big improvement on Chrome's (annoyingly removed) "Search By Image" feature. Google Lens is still useless. You can have the option to select the specific image & the actual image can be sent for processing instead of just the URL. Not to mention support for many other services.
  • (2023-02-26) You're gonna burn alright: Excellent Program :D
  • (2023-02-14) Piteko Pateko Tim Blim: GOOD
  • (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.
  • (2023-01-09) Marcin Lis: 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.
  • (2022-12-15) 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) Eric Volpert: 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) Kindle: Amazing.

  • (2022-11-23) o: I loved it until google killed it with google lens, such a shame.

  • (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.

  • (2022-03-19) Konstantins Kozirevs: So sad google decided to remove this feature and now I need to use this extension. Thanks to developer, but this need was created artificially..
  • (2022-03-16) TJ JTG: Super helpful since my chromebook won't let me disable that STUPID GOOGLE LENS SEARCH no matter what I try, this is the only way to get back to it right not, It's just like nomal THANK YOU!!!
