Can't upload image from tablet

February 11, 2016 at 13:04:05
Specs: Linux
Android 4.4.2 tablet.

I want to send an image I stored in the "Pictures" folder to the
website tineye.com. As best I can tell, the path to the image is:

file:///storage/emulated/0/Pictures/BB-001.jpg

When I put that into the textbox on the TinEye page:

www.tineye.com

I get an error message saying:

Whoops! It looks like you are trying to search for a local file.

Suggestions:
Please use the upload image box to search for local images

Please try another search


Can you tell me what is wrong with the path I input? I see no
option for doing a "search" as the error message suggests.

To the left of the textbox there is a button with an arrow facing upwards, if you click on that it will allow you to navigate through your local drive and select a file, i just tried it.

There seems to be a TinEye app available for android devices have you tried that? i may resolve the issue you are having, unfortunately i do not own an android device so cannot test this myself.
