"Reverse Image Search" extension helps you to find similar images or the original image source and its name. This is a useful tool to find for instance the actual image name or detect whether this image is unique or is just a copy or a modified copy of an already existed image on the web.

In most cases, images are embedded in the background page and hence it is not straightforward to find the actual source of them to be passed to a reverse image search engine. Also, the image you are looking for maybe just part of a video stream. This extension solves these problems by providing a capturing tool in the right-click context menu. Simply select the item and capture a portion of the screen. The captured image is automatically sent to either "TinEye" or "Google Images" search engine, and after a successful upload, a new page with the matching results is displayed.

This extension adds three items to the context menu of your browser:

  1. Google Images (Image URL)
  2. Tineye (Image URL)
  3. Google Images (Capture)

The first two items are added to the image context menu, and the third one is added to the page context to activate the capturing tool. Instead of the third option, you can alternatively press the browser action button.
