How to get back what Google took away

Sandra Phillips | 21 March, 2018, 05:20

The good folks over at Google are back, and today they are making some changes to their Image search platform.

Google has decided that it will be removing the "view image" option that appeared when you clicked on a picture. To paraphrase things, Google's image search function monopolised site traffic, engagement and advertising away from the people who actually produced those images-people like Getty Images, and other photojournalists.

The extension is simply called "View image', and at the time of writing, it already has over 21,000 users. Getty Images should've use robots.txt, 403 forbidden, or hotlink protection on their images instead of asking a search engine to remove a can-be-abused that is a convenience to users".

Now, tech-savvy searchers have taken the matter into their own hands, developing several Google Chrome extensions to bring some of those features back. As the settlement with Getty Images only affects Google, it's business as usual for others like, say, Microsoft Bing. To be on the safer side while using the view image button, you can enable the "labeled for reuse" filter in Google Search.

Next, click the add to Chrome button to start the installation, and then click the Add extension button when prompted. With that feature gone, users are now prompted to visit the webpage where the image is housed if they want to save it.

DuckDuckGo, one of the most popular rivals of Google search engine, provides you the option to download images directly from the search results.

TIAA CREF Investment Management LLC Trims Holdings in NVIDIA Co. (NVDA)

All it takes to fix it, and restore Google Images to its former glory, is an add-on for your browser.

If, however, you aren't so sure about it, you can also get the functionality by using a different search engine.

On the DuckDuckGo image search result page, click on any image thumbnail you like.

There's always a chance Google may remove the extension, so it's best to be quick.

There's no configuration necessary, and the only customizable option is whether to open images in a new tab.
