Google removes 'View Image' button from its image search result page

  • Google removes the button “View Image” from Image Search

"Talk about destroying your own successful service". The company used to offer just thumbnail images before 2013.

I covered this last night on Search Engine Land and it is also on Techmeme. However, a contingency of that deal was that Google would need to make some big changes to image search results.

Left: the updated interface, sans "View Image" button. Google has released a series of tweets informing about the new process. This has also promoted piracy, resulting in widespread copyright infringement, turning users into accidental pirates. Changes like the removal of direct image links were apparently part of the agreement. To add, Getty Images' general counsel Yoko Miyashita at the time said, "Google's behavior is adversely affecting not only our contributors, but the lives and livelihoods of artists around the world, present and future". Google search users reacted negatively.

Fortunately, there is one way to download the images from the search. In 2014, Getty Images launched its embed tool, which revolutionized the visual content industry by making imagery available for easy, legal sharing at no cost for non-commercial use. The button enabled users to access the image directly, instead of the site hosting it. An example of people would be photographers, publishers or anyone that wanted their image strictly on their website and not stolen.

Telugu iOS 11 Bug: Apple Promises To Fix It Soon
Motherboard reported the behavior of users, who have exploited the bug by putting the offending character in their usernames. The Verge verified the glitch and also shared a video that showed the affected app closing in a loop.

Why has Google brought this change? Users can use this option to upload an image and track the image source.

Another change that is going unnoticed is the removal of the "Search Google with this image" option when right clicking on an image while on a website. This, again, seems aimed at allaying publishers' concerns about users quickly searching for alternative images that do not feature a watermark.

Google Image search results. So now it is more hard for a user to save a high-resolution and good quality image.

Besides, Google is also testing its Smart Replies feature for third-party apps.

The combination of filters and sort-orders users pick will also automatically save and apply next time the Wishlist is accessed. This can be frustrating when trying to find items during a large Steam sale or to finding purchases at particular prices.

Select the (...) menu, and choose "View Source Image".

"Ultimately, Google Images is a way for people to discover information in cases where browsing images is a better experience than text", Google said.

However, there is still a way to save images without taking the trouble of visiting a webpage. Earlier this month, the two companies announced that they had reached a deal.
