  • I've been mainly using it for google search but it no longer works - it just redirects to the regular regional google search page :/
  • Do you have any plans to update this extension to the new firefox extension system?
  • How do you make it so when you click 'Google Search' for example, that you don't automatically switch to the newly created tab? I don't think I saw an option for it. Anytime I middle click links, I don't get switched automatically.

    Is this possible to do? Thank you.

    //edit// I don't know how I didn't see 'Background Tab.' It's perfect! Thanks!
    At the top of the first page of the extension's options menu there is a drop down to select how the result page opens. That should allow you to have them open in the background.

    I will be adding additional options to control the placement/order of the newly opened tabs in a future version, but the existing options seem to be enough for your needs.
  • I know Google's reverse image search supports uploading an image, but I have yet to find an addon/extension that leverages this feature, 'Image Search Options' included. Otherwise perfectly fine.
  • It is a shame that neither Google nor ImgOps are amongst the default reverse image search engines.
    If you simply export your settings to a txt file, you can add the following for Google & ImgOps.:

    Google Search|0|1|http://www.google.com/favicon.ico;;;0|1|0|1;;;0;;;http://www.google.com/searchbyimage;;;image_url=::$URL::;;;?|&;;;0;;;http://www.google.com/searchbyimage/upload;;;encoded_image=::$IMGDATA::;;;?|&;;;1

    Afterwards, simply import that same file.
  • For the anime aficionado and in general for anyone interested in sourcing pictures, photographs, you name it, or finding higher resolution versions of a picture this add-on is god-sent.
  • Really handy and straight forward extension if it has been configured. Unfortunately it does not get updated frequently so when reverse search URLs change you have to tweak this extension yourself. The only one I have noticed so far (using this extension for a year or 2) was Yandex change, but you can get the correct configuration from post below - by Alex on August 13, 2015
  • Maybe it's the best extension to do reverse image search, but a lot of search engines are not working with this now (es. Yandex changed url of the search). Thanks for this extension, it would be great if you update it (if you can add google search too :D )

  • Thank you for a very handy add-on. Highly customizable.
    Can you add an option in settings to open search results in a private window?
  • How to search with https://startpage.com/
  • The best image search extension on Firefox that sadly doesn't work with e10s.
  • - there is no google image search option
    - e-hentai search doesn't work (server not found)
  • How do you search images from your computer?

    Edit: Unfortunately I have to modify my review. I have 13 entries but the "search all" functionality will not open more than 8 tabs.

    Please fix.

    Edit 2: Posting my configuration in hope that others can use it:
    (Note that Yandex and Bing now tend to give more accurate results than Google)

  • Вообще шикарно, сотня дополнений с гугл-поиском не нужны.
    У кого проблемы с yandex'ом, замените в настройках "rpt=imagedups" на "rpt=imageview".
    (Who has problems with yandex search, just replace "rpt=imagedups" with rpt=imageview")
  • This app is great, it takes the place of all other image searches! I don't know what you use for your initial list now-a-days (an update function might be a nice add), but it would help others to know what they do.
    First, GazoPa and Cydral are no more, and E-Hentai has changed their API or something, so it no longer works.
    Google, TinEye, and Bing are well known.

    The real stars are the ones that do something other than search:
    ImgOps is a gateway to a plethora of picture editing programs.
    Regex gives the metadata on a photo, way more than I ever realized existed!

    The others all search specific areas that Google & Co. might miss:
    KarmaDecay = Reddit
    SauceNAO = Manga and Anime
    IQDB = Anime and Manga
    Ascii2D = Japan
    Baidu = China
    Yandex = Russia.
    I do hope that Yahoo becomes available, to join the big three image search engines.
  • Yandex searh doesent work.
  • Works great! The export/import feature is particularly handy, thanks.
  • I added Google, Bing, KarmaDecay (Reddit) & ImgOps (in addition to the defaults)

    Here's the settings/txt file you can import:
    (export your settings first if you have custom sites)

    Or here's the settings (simplified) if you want to add them manually:

    Google Image Search

    Icon: http://www.google.com/favicon.ico
    Left Click: http://www.google.com/searchbyimage
    Variables: image_url=::$URL::

    Bing Image Search

    Icon: http://www.bing.com/favicon.ico
    Left Click: http://www.bing.com/images/searchbyimage
    Variables: cbir=sbi&imgurl=::$URL::


    Icon: http://karmadecay.com/favicon.ico
    Left Click: http://karmadecay.com
    Variables: image=::$IMGDATA::
    Checkbox: Enable "Use POST instead of GET"


    Icon: http://imgops.com/favicon.ico
    Left Click: http://imgops.com/
    Variables: ::$URL::
    GET Var Markers: Blank/Blank (delete the ? and &)

    (P.S. to Ryan Hill: Get the Tab Mix Plus extension to open tabs next to current)
  • it is just perfect, in every way!
    thank you so much for this!!
  • Could you add an option to open a new tab next to the current one?
  • I've just found it, installed it and it looks great to me.
  • essential addon, works great
  • works flawlessly on my Firefox 27
  • Awesome and very customizable add-on. Unfortunately it doesn't work on the latest Aurora (which is v29).
  • i just started using this because it seems to do exactly what i've been looking for.

    one question though: is there a way to add Bing as a reverse image search?
    I don't know that Bing has a publicly available reverse image search feature at the moment. If there is one it should be addable.
