- by Firefox user 16751724, 5 months agoRated 1 out of 5tried on tens of pics. it seems to always find the exact same picture i am doing the search on. i mean literally same source, same resolution.
Developer responseposted 5 months agoWhich websites did you try it on? For a lot of sites, it won't be able to find a larger version, because it's the largest version that the site hosts. It doesn't perform a reverse image search, it complements using one, as often reverse image search engines don't link to the largest version a website hosts (as they have no knowledge of how to do this). If, however, the site should does host a larger version and the script doesn't support it, please let me know!
Just to make sure it's not some bug however, can you check if https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DlOC3mOWsAEi1ld.jpg redirects to https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DlOC3mOWsAEi1ld.jpg?name=orig (or a similar URL)?
- by Firefox user 15775202, a year agoRated 1 out of 5Worthless. Tried it on at least a dozen sites. Image size it found was ALWAYS the same size as the image I started with.
Developer responseposted a year agoDoes it work with the example image provided in the addon's description? (https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DlOC3mOWsAEi1ld.jpg , it should redirect to https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DlOC3mOWsAEi1ld.jpg?name=orig )
To be clear (as stated in the description), it doesn't perform a reverse image search, so it's not necessarily unlikely that the sites you checked didn't have a larger version available that was stored on the site itself. Since I'm not sure which sites you tested it on, I can't really give any specific help regarding the images you tested, sorry!
If however there is a larger version (for example, the link I posted above, an album cover on iTunes, non-original images on Twitter/Instagram/Flickr, etc.) and the script fails to find it, please let me know!
Since (I believe) firefox addons don't allow multiple replies, please feel free to contact me in any of the contact links listed in the addon's description (github, reddit, or discord). I'll try my best to help! :)
- 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)
