Chrome Extension: TinEye

Here’s the latest Chrome extension I found for you to check out.

TinEye is a reverse image search engine that looks up equal or similar images in the internet, so you can find where an image comes from, or download a larger version of the original image. Might come in handy if you are working on a website, blog or newsletter.

The Chrome extension allows you to easily look up a picture by simply right-clicking on any web image and select “Search Image on TinEye” from the context menu. Results are displayed for you at

Step 1: Right click any image on your computer:

 Step 2: TinEye Client will automatically upload a compressed copy of the image:

Step 3: You are redirected to the TinEye results page:


Once you’ve installed the extension, you just need to set the extension preferences and you are good to go.

To set extension preferences go to:  Tools > Extensions in the Chrome menu bar. Locate ‘TinEye Reverse Image search’  in the extensions list and click the ‘Options’ link.  From here you can:

*Set sort order preference
*Open searches in background, foreground or current tab
