Google image search: Here's why the View Image button just vanished

ZDNet

Google has removed the'View Image' button in image search results, eliminating a simple way for users to see an image in isolation from the page it was sourced from. The seemingly small change has implications for many users since it makes it more difficult to save high-resolution images straight from image search results. The change is related to last week's announcement by Getty Images of a new multi-year licensing partnership with Google. Getty Image's iStock announced that Google had agreed to make its image search copyright disclaimer more prominent and remove the View Image button. The photo agency last year filed a competition complaint with the European Commission accusing Google of promoting piracy because its image search results included large, high-resolution images.

While image optimization is still an extensive practice, it hasn't been effective for driving much traffic.
