Where Did That Image Come From?
Reverse image search engines have been around for a long time. In the beginning, they were not very accurate, not very fast, and not very useful. However, today’s reverse image search engines are accurate and fast.
Over the last few days, we’ve been test-driving a reverse-image search extension for Google Chrome. In our tests, we found that generally, it works well. The Chrome extension we test is “One-click Reverse Image Search” and it makes all five reverse-image search engines available to you by right-clicking on any Web image.
- Google image search
- Bing image match
- Yandex image search
- TinEye image search
- Baidu image search
One-click Reverse Image Search is uncomplicated and simple to use. Once you add the extension to Chrome, right-click on an image and choose the image search engine you wish to use. You have the option to use all five image search engines at once. We do not recommend that option as each search result will open in a separate browser tab.
When you set up the One-click Reverse Image Search extension, you can elect to use a single default image search engine, or you can choose an option to show a submenu with the five image search engines listed.
In our tests, we elected to use the submenu option. In the screenshot below, you can see that when we right-clicked on an image a menu appeared. We chose the menu option “Search with this image” which opens a submenu showing “All search engines” and a list showing the five search engines included with the One-click Reverse Image Search extension.
It’s time to bring the developer so he or she can more exquisitely acquaint you with One-click Reverse Image Search.
