Google changed the image search function

Nichole VegaFeb 19, 2018

Announced on Twitter yesterday by Google search liaison Danny Sullivan, the change follows a new agreement between Google and Getty Images, which had lodged a complaint against the search giant with the European Commission in 2016.

Google's search engine is that when searching for images allows you to store files in a large extension, now removed this feature. As a result, Google has removed this button, forcing users to visit the site to access the full-sized version of the image.

The company has confirmed in a tweet that it has removed the View Image button.

It was reported that a year ago, the European Commission supposedly received a complaint filed by Getty Images. From there, the image can be expanded with just a click and a copy can be saved afterward. Therefore, the removal of the "view image" button somehow discourages the aforementioned practice.

Critics said the change made Google Images harder to use.

Getty Images said Google had also agreed to display image copyright information more prominently next to results.

"This is an bad update, user unfriendly 'update.' Literally degraded the product". While protecting the images from illegal downloading is still the publisher's responsibility if a user tries to save the image from the site, what Google has contributed is adding one additional step that would compel users to at least visit the publisher's site. Reverse still works by dragging and dropping any image from the search result page to the search field on top.

Under the new agreement, which settled the dispute with Google, Getty Images will be "working closely with them to improve attribution of our contributors' work and thereby growing the ecosystem", Getty Images CEO Dawn Airey said in a statement last week.

Many suggested people should try rival image search engines such as Bing, which still have a "view image" button.
