Has anyone built a macro that automatically uploads an image to Google for a reverse image search?
The user interface of Google image search requires the user to drag & drop an image into the search bar, or click a button and then select a file from the local disks. Both things seem cumbersome to emulate with KBM.
What Google also allows is to search by image URL, which would look like this:
This, however, requires that the image to be searched first be uploaded to some webserver. In the above example, I used my Dropbox account. This slows things down, and introduces another potential point of failure.
The macro I’d like to build would…
- let me select a portion of my screen to “screenshoot”
- save that as a temporary local file
- emulate whatever my browser would do behind the scenes after I drag & drop this file onto Google’s image search bar (but without having to resort to actual mouse actions)
