- by Firefox user 14986384, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5This hasn't been working properly for many months now. It will give me the image I am currently hovering, in the same size as it appears, instead of showing the biggest available size. Many times I've found that simply googling the name of the image I want (often times album art) will yield me the full size while this addon doesn't. There can even be several copies of the same image in the google result, all in different dimensions, and this extension will only give me the dimension of whichever image I use it on, as opposed to the biggest.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoCorrect, this extension does not perform a reverse image search (I should clarify that in the addon's description).
The goal of this addon is to find larger images that the _website_ provides, many of which are otherwise inaccessible (i.e. the website doesn't link to the larger images, even though they exist). The addon isn't meant to replace a reverse image search engine, but rather to be used as a tool in conjunction with one, since the images linked by a reverse image search often aren't as large as they could be.
To address your specific situation, if you were to try to view album art on a blog, this addon would probably not yield a much larger image, unless the blog author uploaded a larger image to their blog (and linked a scaled-down one).
However, if you were to go on the iTunes website and use the addon on album art there, you'd likely find a much larger image than what's on the website, because iTunes does store very high-definition images on their server (which aren't by default available on their website).
I hope this answers your question. If not, please let me know :) (you can use the Github issue tracker or Discord)

The developer is very responsive on GitHub when I reported a bug and also kind enough to add 2 more features I requested in our conversation. He too posted a simple but informative guide to finding larger images here:
