TinEye updates
TinEye Chrome extension: Right-click functionality is here!

Simply right-click an image to search using the Chrome extension.

If you are a TinEye fan and a Chrome user, you have probably been waiting for this update! The TinEye extension for Chrome now supports right-click functionality.

This means that instead of clicking the TinEye button in your Chrome toolbar to select a web image to be searched, you can simply right-click on any web image and select “Search Image on TinEye” from Chrome’s new right-click context menu.

Much easier!

Get the new version of the TinEye extension for Chrome, or grab the extension for FirefoxSafari or Internet Explorer if you haven’t already!

UPDATE: If you would like the old version of the Chrome extension which uses the toolbar button and popup window, you can get that, too.

I wondered where the box in the upper right corner was, but then I right-clicked on the picture (to copy the image adress and then do it “manually”), and I saw the new function! So great :)

Hey Lukas: awesome. We love to enchant our fans! Happy searching.

Yes, well, the right-click option is fine in principle. But many websites disable right-click functionality. No good at all. Can we have the toolbar button back as well, please?

Hi Roger. You may be pleased to know that we have released two versions of the TinEye extension for Chrome:

* The new extension which uses the context menu
and
* The old extension which uses a button and popup

Thanks for your feedback. Enjoy!
