Learn more about this release from the changelog.
A powerful reverse image search tool, with support for various search engines, such as Google, Bing, Yandex, Baidu and TinEye.
Search by Image is a browser extension for Firefox 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 consider contributing with Patreon, PayPal or Bitcoin.
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.
Images positioned at the selected area are detected regardless of how they were embedded in the page. The extension also supports uploading local images, searching for video frames, capturing details within images, and searching for images from private sites.
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.
- Select URL: select an image on the page, then search for the image URL. This is the default search mode.
- Select image: select an image on the page, then fetch the image, possibly from the browser cache, and search for it. This search mode is preferred for sites which do not allow the direct linking of images, such as private sites.
- Capture: select and capture a page area, then search for it.
- Browse: select an image from your device, then search for it.
- URL: search for an image URL.
The extension is also available for Chrome and Safari.
