Reverse image search using various search engines, such as Google, Bing, Yandex, Baidu and TinEye.
Search by Image is a browser extension which enables you to initiate a reverse image search from the right-click context menu or the browser toolbar. It finds all images positioned in the clicked area, including those declared in CSS. The extension also supports uploading local images and searching for images from private sites.

The extension supports more than 20 reverse image search engines that can be toggled and reordered from the extension's options. Visit the wiki for the full list of supported search engines.
A handful of search modes are offered that serve different use cases. The search mode can be set independently for the context menu and browser toolbar from the extension's options.
• Select (context menu and toolbar): select an image on the page, then search for the image URL, whenever possible. Blob and data URLs will still be handled as image uploads. This is the default search mode.
• Select & upload (context menu and toolbar): select an image on the page, then fetch the image, possibly from the browser cache, and upload it. This search mode is preferred for sites which do not allow direct linking of images or are otherwise private.
• Capture (context menu and toolbar): select and capture a page area, then upload it.
• Upload (toolbar): select or drop an image from your device, or paste it from the clipboard, then upload it.
• URL (toolbar): search for an image URL.
• Search with a single engine, or all enabled ones, directly from the top-level context menu item, or the browser toolbar button (see options)
• Detect any image on the page, including those declared in CSS and pseudo-elements
• Select the desired image from a dialog when multiple images are found
• Search for images from private sites (see search modes)
• Search for local images
• Search for the current video frame
The context menu item is always visible, unless it is disabled. Visit the wiki for more details.
The extension is also available for Firefox and Opera:
