The internet giant Google has announced its latest feature in image search. Google image search gets redesigned and now it will load faster.It allows users seamless and faster image search functionality, now users can use their keyboard to browse the images. Earlier the user has to get back to original page to see the next image, now with this transforming feature you’ll see image results displayed in an inline panel so it’s faster, more beautiful, and more reliable.

“People looking for images on Google often want to browse through many images, looking both at the images and their metadata (detailed information about the images). Based on feedback from both users and webmasters, we redesigned Google Images to provide a better search experience,” said Google in a blogpost by Associate Product Manager Hongyi Li.

Before it was like this:


Now with new feature:



Here are some of the changes explained by Li:

  •  We now display detailed information about the image (the metadata) right underneath the image in the search results, instead of redirecting users to a separate landing page.
  •   We’re featuring some key information much more prominently next to the image: the title of the page hosting the image, the domain name it comes from, and the image size.
  • The domain name is now clickable, and we also added a new button to visit the page the image is hosted on.
  •   The source page will no longer load up in an iframe in the background of the image detail view. This speeds up the experience for users, reduces the load on the source website’s servers, and improves the accuracy of webmaster metrics such as pageviews.

    Great. I think this redesign should have been done as the Facebook has launched the Graph Search.

    As now Facebook launched the Graph Search, Google would have thought that it would be a competition for them and so they have tried to redesign and still grab the attention of its users.

    Well I hope this will help those with slower internet connections like me. I used to experience lags when I browse images from Google search. It such a pain when I had to work on site promotion and I need some images. Thanks for this info and hope big G does this soon.

    This is not a good news for webmasters, not only Google will not bring more traffic to website, but also consume the site’s bandwidth!
