Google again made changes to the work of its search engine: on This time is gone «View image» button ( "View full size " ) when searching for a specific image. Also on the selected image appears: " Images can be protected by copyright " .
Earlier with using this button in the search engine images it was possible to open the image separately and at full resolution, without having to switch to site. However, photographers and publishers were unhappy with the unhindered " theft " of their works, so Google had to go to compromise.
Removing the " View image " button was one of the terms and conditions of the license agreement between Google and a major photobank Getty Images. Such a decision in corporations were called "the balance between meeting the needs of users and publishers " .
What to do
But open images in full size is still possible, only have to spend an extra 30 seconds. There are several ways to do this:
- AT image search results, right-click on the image. photos and select " Open picture in new tab " ;
- Press the right mouse button and select " Copy image URL " , then enter it in the address bar.
And users of Google Chrome can install an add-on to the browser , which returns the familiar button back.
