The last few days when I go to google images to do a reverse image search it won't work. I click to browse and upload the photo from my computer and it just sits there spinning and won't upload, have left it 5min or more. Tiny eye is working fine but I prefer google. Is it me or them? Mary

I didn't know one could do a reverse image search. Reinforces that one should read all threads, even if the topic doesn't seem of interest - never can tell what can be learned.

Sorry, I can't help you Acraftylady but thanks for asking the question and teaching this dog a new trick.

Here are the links, I like google best as it seems to always find what I am searching for. I just booted up laptop and same thing, not working. I asked some friends online and no one else is having trouble with it so I can't figure out what happened as of a few days ago, it's very strange. I am sure I didn't touch any computer settings or anything. Mary

Boy, that is a new wrinkle with me too.

Mary, what browser are you using? Have you tried a different browser? Have you tried numerous pics?

I just tried one with Firefox and the Tiny Eye and it worked.

Using IE9 on both computers, haven't tried another browser as I don't have one on the desktop but guess I will install firerox and give it a try. Tiny eye I have no trouble with it's just google images and it started a few days ago and I just can't figure out what could have happened when everything else on the computer and online is fine.

I have used reverse image search for a few years now. I do needle work and I sometimes crome across one online on someones blog with no name so can usually track it down this way. Mary

Well it appears to be an IE problem as it works fine with firefox. Anyone have a clue on where to start? Mary
