'View Image' Button Removed From Google Search

Google has removed one of the most important parts of image search. The company disabled the "view image" button on its desktop search interface.

That means that people can no longer easily navigate to the picture they'd searched for – or download it for later use.

It means that people will only be given the option to see the picture on the page that hosts it. That means clicking into the website and complying with its rules, rather than making it easy for people to look at only the picture.

That appears partly to be the reason that Google made the change. The new site discourages people from being able to steal pictures that they ordinarily wouldn't be able to download, or to link to pictures without people seeing whatever is surrounding them on a page.

Google initially said that the change had been made "to help connect users and useful websites", and stressed that the view on page button would still be around. But it said later that the change had been made in part because of an agreement with Getty to make it harder to steal the image agency's pictures.

They are designed to strike a balance between serving user needs and publisher concerns, both stakeholders we value," Google said on its "search liaison" page.


✔️ First Method:
You can get the feature back by adding a Chrome extension. One of them – called, helpfully, "View Image" – adds the buttons back into Google.

✔️ Second Method:
It's also possible to get to the actual image fairly easily, despite the fact the button has disappeared. To do that, just right click on the image in the results and select to view it in a new tab – that will open up the picture and you'll be free to do whatever you want with it.

  1. I am still wondering why it was removed, but they would have announced it before doing so..
