TinEye Client

TinEye Client is an extension for Windows Explorer that adds TinEye to the context menu of image files.

TinEye is a reverse image search engine that looks up equal or similar images in the internet, so you can find where an image comes from, or download a larger version of the original image.

Step 1: right click any image on your computer:

Copia di Example_Enabled

Step 2: TinEye Client will automatically upload a compressed copy of the image:

Step 3: You are redirected to the TinEye results page:

@Vishnu K V
Are you using XP, Vista or 7? Did you try to disable and re-enable the option? Do you receive any error messages?

Why not give us the option to search for similar images locally?

I've found the problem (for me, anyway). My default app for images is ACDSee - I changed the default app back to Windows Photo Viewer and the TinEye option was presented on the right-click menu.

Can anyone else replicate? I've provided feedback to the developer. Hopefully we can help trouble shoot this.

I just confirmed it, thanks

Great plugin, thank you! I use TinEye mostly to get the largest image available for something low resolution I've downloaded elsewhere. What I'd like to see, if TinEye could support it, would be a full directory search of images on your computer and automatically downloading the largest one.

Hello! I've got some problem. I use ESET Smart Security for firewaling connetions. Then i try to upload image, firewall asks me what to do - i'm, of course, made the rule to always allow traffic for TinEye Client. But its alays shows an error "Upload failed". But if i completely disabling firewall, its ok. What i must check? Thanx

Hi,
On Xp sp3, TinEye Client disappears from shell.
I think it's the result of the install of a new version of Office... not sure of that (anyway, the default app for images was Windows Photo Viewer) !
Best regards & thanks

I doubt your still working on this considering how long its been but can you please add upload to Google image as well, google seems to have a bigger index than tineye so sometimes returns something when tineydoesnt, thanks a million

Yes, indeed. Google Images however supports drag'n'drop from the file explorer, so it's not much of an issue.
