  • Here you can post comments about TinEye Reverse Image Search (Context menu) extension, created by ideeinc

  • работает 100%

  • This extension is very good, it works the same as Google image search.

  • Very good bro!

  • Didn't work for me. Searched on an image from a news story and said 0 results from 39.5 billion images. Did same with google and found instantly 6 image matches even with same image at different sizes. Not very impressed.

    I have found the same thing happen at Google images, not just TinEye.

    At times, the image is not found at Google, but found at TinEye and visa versa. I use both sometimes to see if there are different results.

    Keep in mind, some people who make their websites block crawlers from indexing their images on purpose, to stop others from stealing their images.

    It could happen that TinEye was blocked from indexing the image(s) but not Google. Either way, never depend on Google or TinEye 100% to locate or match an image, ... yet both provide excellent image search tools.

  • Every time I use it, it says "The requested URL's length exceeds the capacity limit for this server."

    Don't use the image URL, instead download the image to your desktop and then drag it into Tineye page or the Google Images page (drag it over the search box of either).

    URL's can be problematic, especially when they are too long or contain characters that create issues with servers. Also, some servers are purposely configured to block certain URL requests to stop excess use of their bandwidth and for security reasons. This is why using just the image as I described above is the best way to do an image search.

    mark2090's advice is good. In my experience, often when you get this error it's because the image isn't a URL to a data file, but a data URL that embeds all of the image data right in the address. Google tends to use these quite a bit on their pages. In these cases, downloading the image and using it to search may be your best option.

    Happy searching!

    ideenic has made a good point which I forgot about.

    It is true, many websites now use a data scheme or a data attribute in their HTML source code of a web page to embed images, and "data attributes" tend to include various script methods. This can make downloading the image problematic. So, if the standard "right-click / save image as" command does not work, then take a screenshot and extract the specific image from the screenshot using an image editor like MSPaint, saving the image using the common format of JPG or PNG.
