Google removes 'view image' button from search results

19 Febrero, 2018, 01:45 | Author: Misty Newman
  • Within a few days itself an Australian student and developer by the name of Joshua has already built a Chrome and Firefox extension

Google said it had removed some features from image search, including the "view image" button.

This change will plug a big hole in the plagiarism issues that various photographers, publishers, and stock image sites faced as users had the provision to save the high-resolution version of an image directly, without visiting the source website. Specifically, a new Chrome Extension can be installed to generate the same old button that allows you to find an image and view it directly.

The tweet directs followers toward an article by The Verge, which notes that "Google has always been under fire from photographers and publishers who felt that image search allowed people to steal their pictures, and the removal of the view image button is one of many changes being made in response".

In 2017, Getty Images complained to the European Commission, accusing Google of anti-competitive practices. The only problem with that is, instead of just loading the image it loads the website hosting it. And if they wanted to steal it, they could right-click to save the image to their computer or storage device.

Critics said the change made Google Images harder to use.

Earlier this month, the two firms had agreed that images from Getty's enormous archives would start appearing inside Google Search, but that was not the only part of the deal.

"This is an terrible update, user unfriendly 'update.' Literally degraded the product". "By signing this petition, you are telling Google and Getty Images that removing the button will not stop people downloading copyrighted images". "Talk about destroying your own successful service".

The button loads the image that is displayed directly. Most users don't need it probably though as it is still possible to right-click on images to load them individually.

Google confirmed that the change is directly related to the Getty Images complaint.
