There was a bug...

... in the latest update of my Chrome extension, RevEye v1.5.0, which went live today. Thanks to the alertness of several users, the bug is fixed now and the new, corrected version v1.5.1 will be rolled out soon.

In any case, if you need to perform reverse image searches right now and are stuck with the buggy version, you can follow the next steps to fix the bug until the extension updates on your machine:

  1. Go to the options screen (right click on icon > options)
  2. Open DevTools (F12 on Windows, Command+Option+I on Mac).
  3. In the tab "Console", write the following code and press enter:

    localStorage.services = ['google', 'bing', 'yandex', 'tineye'];

  4. Visit the page chrome://extensions/, disable the extension and enable it again.
Now it should work correctly, including the new options introduced in v1.5.0.
