TinEye for Safari

TinEye is a reverse image search engine for the web. You can submit an image to it and it will find all web pages that it has indexed that contain that image, regardless of any watermarking, cropping, or minor modifications. This extension adds a contextual menu item to image tags that lets you search for that image directly on TinEye. It is completely unofficial, with no affiliation with TinEye whatsoever.

Installation

First, if you haven't already, you need to enable extensions. Once enabled, go to the downloads section and grab the latest version. Then just double-click the downloaded file and Safari will prompt you to install. Once installed, you'll need to reload any existing tabs in order to use the extension on those tabs.

Usage

Right-click any image on any web site. A contextual menu item "Search Image on TinEye" should show up. Select that item and a new tab will open with your TinEye search. If the contextual menu item is not visible, then either you did not click on an image, the image was too small to be searched for, or the image was a background image (due to technical reasons, the plugin cannot detect clicks on background images).

Updates

Updates should appear automatically in Safari's Extensions Updates pane.
