No More View Image In Google

Most of you have already been experienced one significant change in Google’s image search that once clicking on the image there is no “view image” option. This is the result of a complaint done by Getty Image to the European Commission against where Google had been accused of anti-competitive practices.

After the accusation, Google had removed that feature along with some more.

Though because of this change Google has to face some criticism as well.

Getty Images, being a giant photo library actually sells different photographers and illustrators work to the businesses, newspapers and broadcasters.

Since Google had view image option from where images can be easily downloaded and saved, images from Getty can be done in the same way even the appropriate license and permission. This view image button takes the audience to that individual picture in the web browser which makes it easy to download.

Not only view image, Google has also removed “search by image” option also image copyright information will be imposed more prominently.

Google said, “For those asking, yes, these changes came about in part due to our settlement with Getty Images this week.

They are designed to strike a balance between serving user needs and publisher concerns, both stakeholders we value.”

But critics addressed them as awful, user-unfriendly and degraded the product.
One user on Twitter said, “This is a terrible idea… you find an image on Google Images only for the image to be nowhere in sight. Talk about destroying your own successful service.”

In a statement, Getty Images said: “We are pleased to announce that after working cooperatively with Google over the past months, our concerns are being recognized and we have withdrawn our complaint.”
