When on a web page, if you see an image that you would like to find similar images for, do the following:

  • Click the bookmarklet (in your bookmarks bar/folder).
    • A new section-bar will be added to the window of current site.
  • Click on any image you want to search.
    • The section-bar will update with a thumbnail and a "Search" and "Cancel" button.
    • If the image can't be processed, you'll be notified.
    • Note that on some sites, images may click-through (depending on how the site was developed).

To determine the version you're running, hover over the info (i) button. If you're version is outdated, delete your bookmarklet and reinstall.
