If you are using Google Image search for your image finding needs you'd probably noticed that it is sometimes not as easy to find the image on the page if you are clicking through. This is especially true for pages with dozens or even hundreds of images on a single page.

The Google Chrome Oogle extension improves this essential part of the image search experience in multiple ways. When you click on an image in the search results you are still taken to the page the image was found on. Instead of having to scroll down until you locate it by yourself, this is now handled by the extension automatically.

It will automatically scroll to the location of the image on the page so that you can see it right away. To top it all off, it furthermore highlights the image with a border so that you can recognize it even if other images are displayed next to it on the page.

Identification works very well most of the time. The developer has stated however that there are pages where it does not work yet.

Chrome users can change the highlighting color from black to another color in the extension's options.

Just enter another color into the "highlight image in page with a shadow in" form. You should see the new color immediately being applied to the border of the form.

The options furthermore allows you to switch between the new and old style of image results, and to enable Google's lightbox which overlays the image you have been searching for on the page it has been posted on.

Oogle is a basic extension that can speed up the a user's workflow considerably when searching for images on Google's image search engine.

The ability to highlight and scroll to the image sets it apart from other solutions. Chrome users can download and install Oogle from the official Chrome Web Store.
