Why use Tineye and then search for text on Google? Search for the image on Google and use the date range like you were: google search Remember, you can just drag and drop an image into Google image search (it'll even figure out the name of the image like it did in my search example) which is pretty awesome actually. However, be careful, as the date ...

Looks like the option got removed, and Google have even acknowledged it: Thanks for writing in. We're aware of this issue, and we're working on bringing the feature back. I'll let you know as soon as it's back up. Sorry for any inconvenience As pointed out in that thread, you can still get an exact size by using the imagesize filter like so: html5 ...

There is an extension for Chrome called Search by Image which is provided by Google. This allows you to right click an image and initiate a Google Search.

There are a few options here based on different browsers. It is basically disabling JavaScript for Google Images ONLY - so it reverts to the old version. It is strange how this isn't a preference on your Google account. http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2007/01/getting-old-google-image-search-back.html This page also links to a GreaseMonkey script which ...

Yes, it is possible by URL Tweaking. Google’s image search feature includes an option to sort images by date. The default options in Google’s left-hand menu only cover results from the past week, but you can get additional results by tinkering with the search URL. Google Operating System notes that by clicking the ‘past week’ URL and editing ...

There's every chance you can't find the original, since it may have been posted to a site from which it was later removed, or which automatically purges old posts, or which has shut down in the intervening years. Search-engines and archive.org cache a lot of old content after it has been removed, but they don't catch everything, and as you've discovered, ...

There doesn't seem to be any way to save Google Image search preferences, even when logged in to Google, which is a bit strange. I would have thought this would be something that a lot of people would use. Anyway, you could probably create a little piece of JavaScript and add to your toolbar as a bookmarklet to do this. Something like this would work: ...

Google recently started indexing SVG files; http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2011/01/google-image-search-indexes-svg-files.html It should be there as a 'filetype' option in the advanced images search; http://www.google.com/advanced_image_search This might also be useful; Find SVG vector images with Google Search Hope this helps.

In Germany you can do it like this ("Animiert" means "animated"):

You can't. Google image search has no option to sort the results. They are always sorted by their relevance(according to Google's algorithm). Images can be seen sorted by resolution only when you search for similar images for an image. You can filter the results by setting a resolution threshold. But you still cannot sort them.

A couple of suggestions: The Advanced Image Search doesn't have drag-and-drop, so you could block access to the Image Search home page and force everyone to use advanced. You could whip up a page that uses the (deprecated) Google Image Search API. It provides a JavaScript interface to embed Google Image Search results in your website or application. ...

When you are on the results page, scroll down to the footer (hit the End key) and click Switch to basic version. You have to do that fast, or the script will add new images and move the footer away. You get a simple version now with a rather clean link. You can switch back with the same procedure and you will still have the same short link. With your ...

The second image's native/true resolution is 768x960, which does match what Google image search said. It is indeed strange that the first image's native/true resolution is 600x750, but Google image search reports as 800x1000. At first, I suspected Google was reading the images' metadata tags, but I looked at the EXIF and IPTC tags, and they were correctly ...

I rather like www.search.creativecommons.org, because it 1) Gives me results that I can use (without or without alternation) on sites where I run advertising, and 2) Lets me type in a set of keywords once, and then apply them across my choice of image or media source (for the options they have available).

A quick search for "Google images downloader" revealed two possible solutions: 1) Google Images Downloader - (Desktop application) Google Image Downloader (GiD) allows you to download images by entering a search term. It then hits the internet and downloads the full sized images from all of the sites Google images returns. Read more: Google Image ...

It's not currently possible to use Google Alerts for images.

This isn't possible as the only size operator is imagesize so you must give both dimensions puppies imagesize:50x50 puppies imagesize:50 gets dropped because Google doesn't understand the parameter given as it's not supported.

Check out Remove Image Search Zoom Extension. Full Disclosure: I wrote this after reading your post.

No. You cannot have an instant flag remove the image. You can however set safeSearch to strict giving you a slimmer change of browsing offensive images.

You really would have more luck using a more specialized website that you can search for titles, like Amazon.fr or IMDB to get examples of that. You're going to find FAR too many examples of books and movies being called boring for any Google search to be useful at all. In any case, "Ennuyeux" strikes me as a word that is REALLY unlikely to find it's way ...

It's not showing as an option since they haven't yet made that available in an SSL version. Features: SSL Search Note that only Google web search is available over SSL, so other search products like Google Images and Google Maps are not currently available over SSL. When you're searching you should still see an option for Google Images in the main ...

Ha! Yes we know that, so basically the answer is no, Google can't search for animated GIFs.

You can use advanced image search and select the file type from options.

From the advanced search http://www.google.com/advanced_image_search , it seems the SVG Filetype is not specified, though SVGs are indexed. So, to my knowledge I don't think it is possible via Google Images you are just going to have do a regular search. http://www.google.com/search?q=filetype:svg
