Description from extension meta

Brings the [View Image] and [Search by Image] buttons back to Google Images search results.

Image from store Make Google Images Great Again
Description from store After you install this extension, you should see the [View Image] and [Search by Image] buttons in the expanded preview of Google Image search results. Why doesn't Google Image search have these very useful buttons any more? Because Getty Images was worried that those buttons made it too easy to commit copyright infringement, and Google desperately wanted to be able to continue to include Getty Images in its image search results. If you notice anything weird or it doesn't work, send an email to [email protected] and we'll figure it out. Note that Google's HTML and javascript on its image search results pages is pretty funky, so this extension definitely has to resort to some methods that are not as robust as I'd like. Take a look at the code and if you have any suggestions on how to be less reliant on their div class names and DOM hierarchy, let me know.

  • (2019-01-26) Oran Davis: Excellent extension!
  • (2019-01-23) Dustin: works fine.
  • (2018-12-19) Blase Zinck: I had this extension for Firefox and I was hoping to use it in Chrome, but I was a little worried after reading reviews that it was recently broken by an update to Google Images. I'm happy to say that the developer must have updated his extension because it is working fantastically. Someone also said this extension injects ads into your results, which is completely false. I checked the extension's code myself and the code is straight to the point, it's very clean code and contains nothing even remotely suspicious.
  • (2018-11-10) Paisano: does not work with new google image UI
  • (2018-11-05) Skill seizer: some of the time it work but some it nevveer load like u never have it .
  • (2018-11-02) Alexander Liu: Was a little slow to start working, but worked after a while, and it surprised me. It was so seamless that I had thought that Google had added the buttons back! Nice job!
  • (2018-10-24) I S: Best!
  • (2018-10-02) Iria Didi: It worked absolutely wonderful until a few weeks ago. Since everyone is having the same problem and now Google doesn't even let you open images in a new tab I think it's Google's fault. Funcionaba de maravilla hasta hace unas semanas. Como todo el mundo está teniendo el mismo problema y ahora las imágenes ni siquiera se pueden abrir en una nueva pestaña me da que es cosa de Google.
  • (2018-09-07) 정지민: The one who programmed this is the pure joy of humanity. I humbly hope we deserve this treasure. It really works.
  • (2018-08-22) Nitish Jadia: EDIT: Doesn't work anymore. Great! It works. :D
  • (2018-08-21) Rutwij Makwana: Image download works but since it has permission to change the webpages you visit, it uses that to inject ads into your google search results and that too on the top (4 ads in total for me) which takes up half the page of my search result. The worse thing is that it does not say that this extension is responsible for the ads anywhere so removing them would be a pain in the butt.

  • (2019-12-17, v:0.2.0) Michael Pirrone: Broken
    Not working at all. No "Search by Image" option appears
  • (2019-08-07, v:0.2.0) Michael Zaiderman: Update to the new google search layout
    Hello, the new google search layout renders your extension inoperable. Will there be an update? Thank you for your service
  • (2019-05-14, v:0.2.0) Jonathan Wenger: Add feature set to individual image page
    I love your extension; it has saved me a lot of wasted time and effort. However, I think it would be useful to make the buttons appear on the single image page. For example, if I go to Google Images and open an image link in a new tab, I get this page: https://images.app.goo.gl/W8uQ61wtanV8azwd9. This page doesn't have the buttons for "View Image" or anything else. It would be useful if you could extend the functionality to this page.
  • (2018-11-10, v:0.2.0) Paisano: does not work in new google images UI
    stopped working after google images update
  • (2018-08-13, v:0.2.0) Jason: Doesn't work anymore
    Instead of giving you a 1-star, I'm letting you know that this extension doesn't work anymore! Must be Google's new image layout. A very sad day!

  • (2018-03-24, v:0.2.0) Sean Robison: 404's
    I think Google pushed out some new code or something, because I can't even right-click to open the image in a new tab anymore, it just gives me the thumbnail, and when I click the "View Image" button added by the addon it simply brings me to a Google 404 page. Anyone else having this issue?
  • (2018-03-05, v:0.2.0) Paisano: Doesn't always work
    only sometimes.
  • (2018-02-27, v:0.2.0) Vicki Lowe: Quick question
    When clicking on the "view image" button, was it supposed to open the image up in a new tab or automatically save the picture on your hard drive? I clicked on the "view image" button for a picture and it saved it to my hard drive which while I did wanted to save it anyways, I know I'm not going to want to save ever picture I want a closer look at.
  • (2018-02-21, v:0.1.2 alpha) Josh Fletcher: Not working
    Neither button shows up. I would wager Google is actively fighting you here :(
  • (2018-02-20, v:0.1.2 alpha) Makis Kypraios: Not working here as well
    When opening the expanded view in image search, just the same Visit, Save, View saved and Share buttons appear.
