Similar to hitting Ctrl + F to find text on a webpage does anyone know of a tool to find images? I'd like the same text search functionality ideally i.e. highlight the results and tab through the results.

I've researched for a tool for a while but can't find anything. I'm sure you could search on the img alt or title tags using JQuery but are there existing tools out there as browser extensions/add-ons/plugins perhaps?

Please note: - There is a long list of images to trawl through visaully to find the one that I want. - I can't edit the code to write the alt/title as text in order to use Alt-F.

** I need the tool to work on the rendered web page itself. Like the Ctrl + F functionality, when searching for text. To quickly find an image location on the screen by highlighting and navigating to it when there could be 100's of images to look at, using a long scrollbar

You could view the source of the webpage and then search the source, this would find matching text in the alt or title tags.
