Google Abandons 'View Image' Option in its Image Search
In an official tweet, Google announced getting rid of its 'View Image' option in order to protect the image hosting websites' and photographers' copyrights.
On Friday, 16 February 2018, Google tweeted, "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 web pages they're on."
All the same, the "Visit Page" button is still available, clicking which people may go to the actual source of that image, giving more value to the original source of that image. By taking this step, Google clarified for the whole wide world that just like the organisation with copyrighted images is concerned about the use of their entity, Google is too.
The aim of the global search engine behind this step is to bring more traffic to the websites that originally host such images that people seek. All in all, it will support the business growth of the former. Moreover, this step will keep the copyrights of photographers protected too.
Although, those who can still do away with low quality version, can download the same by usual 'click right' and 'save image' or 'open image in new tab' options. This manner not being stopped till now, seems to be favoured by Google, unintentionally.
