- Recap: TinEye plugins make image search easier
TinEye browser extensions make searching for image-use faster and easier! Our newest extension for Chrome was unveiled earlier this month on the Chrome Extensions site. Once installed, just click on the TinEye button on your Chrome toolbar, and the extension looks through the page you’re on for all images. Click on the image you want, and voila! TinEye whirls into action.
Our Chrome extension follows the brilliant success of the TinEye Firefox add-on. Over 500,000 downloads and growing, the plugin adds a right-click menu item to allow you to search any image on the net against TinEye’s index. Maximum PC chose TinEye as their Firefox add-on of the week!
Of course, let’s not forget our bookmarklets for iPhone, Blackberry and smartphone junkies. Once you select the TinEye images bookmarklet, all the images on the page you were just viewing will be collected and sent to TinEye. To search for an image, just select the one you want and view the results.
- The TinEye Chrome extension is here!
You asked for it, and we are happy to deliver. The TinEye extension for Chrome is now live, and ready to make your searching a little easier.
Instructions for installing the extension can be found on our plugins page, or you can just jump right over to the Chrome Extensions site and click ‘Install’. It’s that easy! While you’re there, be sure to check out our how-to video on YouTube (or watch it below).
This extension works for Windows and Linux. Once Chrome supports it, a Mac version will be coming soon. Also, Chrome currently does not support right-clicking so the present extension behaves similar to our TinEye bookmarklet (but much nicer!). We’ll be updating the functionality once right-clicking is made available.
- TinEye planned downtime for Feb 9th @ 10am EST
Just a head’s up that we have some planned downtime for TinEye scheduled for Tuesday February 9th @ 10am EST. We will be doing some behind-the-scenes maintenance and TinEye should only be offline for about an hour. Thanks for your patience.
