Google Removes ‘View Image’ Button From Image Search Results

Search engine giant Google today made some charges to its image search. Some of the changes includes removing the ‘view image’ button from search results that appear when you click on a picture and also the “search by image” button that appeared when you open up a photo. Although the changes are small but has a huge impact on users experience.

These few changes is a new way for the search giant to stop copy right infringement and as well drive traffic to the source of the content provider. This announcement was made via the company's twitter account it wrote;
Today we're launching some changes on Google Images to help connect users and useful websites. This will include removing the View Image button. The Visit button remains, so users can see images in the context of the webpages they're on.
This change is comes after a lot of photographers and publishers complained about who Google image search allowed people to steal their pictures and work. Before the change, you search for images in Google, you have the option to save the image you are viewing for later use.
