Reverse Image Search for Manga, Anime, CGs, etc. with 10 Different Search Engines.

Get Sauce makes it easy to find the sources of your images.

Run it directly or through a share sheet.

App Version

I made an app version that is faster and more convenient.
It requires iOS 14+, macOS 11+, visionOS 1+, or Android 7+. If you are using iOS 13, continue to use the shortcut version.
