Always Show Size In Google Image Search Result (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi)




If you’ve read my post here then you know already that Mycroft site has already provided the plugin to always show size (or resolution) in Google Images, and with the help of Context Search X you can add this custom search engine right into Firefox context menu.

Here is another way by making use of the keyword search (or smart keyword) function that are readily available in Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Vivaldi browsers.

Let’s start it.

Firefox

  1. Search anything on Google Images.
  2. Click “More Tools” and enable “Show sizes”.
  3. Right-click on the Google Images search box and select “Add a Keyword for this Search”
  4. Change the name to a more recognizable one such as “google images show size”
  5. Add a keyword like “gim”

google-images-show-size-1

google-images-show-size-2

Let’s say that you want to search Chloe Moretz pictures. Type gim chloe moretz in the address bar. The result will open in Google Images along with the sizes.

Google Chrome and Vivaldi

  1. Search anything on Google Images.
  2. Click “More Tools” and enable “Show sizes”.
  3. Right-click on the Google Images search box and select “Add as a search engine”
  4. Change the name to a more recognizable one such as “google images show size”
  5. Add a keyword like “gim”

Opera

  1. Search anything on Google Images.
  2. Click “More Tools” and enable “Show sizes”.
  3. Right-click on the Google Images search box and select “create search engine”
  4. Change the name to a more recognizable one such as “google images show size”
  5. Add a keyword like “gim”

With this method, you can also make other new shortcuts that let you search Google Images only for a specific resolution or color, or search only for images published in the past week, and so on. You can create individual shortcut for each rule or one single shortcut that combines a number of rules at once, e.g. search black and white 1366×768 pictures only while showing the sizes.
