Google Kills 'View Image' Button in Image Search after Getty Settlement

"If you woke up this morning and were confused by Google Images" sudden lack of "View Image" button, then you weren't alone. So while it becomes more hard now for a user to search a picture, it benefits the photographers and designers who have put up their work online. The image will open in another tab from where you can save.

Google SearchLiaison tweeted yesterday (15 February): "Today we're launching some changes on Google Images to help connect users and useful websites".

Google has replaced the "View Image" button with a "Visit" button. After viewing the image the decision to download it or not became clearer.

Thanks to this new partnership between the two companies, you now have to visit each individual website for each image you click on. It's likely the image you see on the site itself has been scaled down. According to Google, the "View Image" link in Google Images has been removed following a recent legal settlement between Google and Getty Images.

He noted that Google Images is created to help users find information when browsing images provides a "better experience" than does searching through text.

Kicker Sebastian Janikowski not coming back for Raiders
Tavecchio made $465,000 last season on a one-year deal compared to Janikowski's $3 million (after a $ 1 million pay cut ). Over the course of his career, he would convert on 414 of 515 field goals.

But knowing that Google has a history of abandoning beloved features, others have simply resigned themselves to brace for the search engine's next big change.

Getty has really been concerned with the way just about anybody could access even copyrighted material via Google image search. Getty Images sells photos online for a living, and the company accused Google of anti-competitive practices. "We will license our market leading content to Google, working closely with them to improve attribution of our contributors' work and thereby growing the ecosystem".

"This is a ridiculous inconvenience", writes Jesse Levesque.

Getty Images said it was a "significant milestone" but critics said the move was "a step backwards".

Oh well, whatever placates Getty I guess. Instead, the new options that appear next to the images are - visit, share and save. "Congrats, you have reduced your functionality to the point where Bing is an actual competitor". By standing in the way of a fair marketplace for images, Google is threatening innovation, and jeopardizing artists' ability to fund the creation of important future works.
