The search engine giant, Google made some changes to its image search engine. Google has suddenly removed the view image option and company claims that it is for a good reason. It’s been a while since google is under fire from publishers and photographers who complained of people stealing their pictures without giving a proper credit. So, by removing the view image button, it is Google’s way of securing copyrights and generating revenue for websites that host those images. Google is basically trying to cut down on instances of stealing images without giving credit to the source. On one hand, the intention of this new move is for good, but it is also creating a lot of problems for people while they are trying to download images from Google.
Previously, in order to save images from Google, all we had to do is click on the view image option on the right-hand side of the page, right click on the picture and then save it. But now, with the removal of this option, Google now wants the users to click on the Visit option, go to the source website, and right click on the image and only then save the image. Which basically means in order to download a photo from the Internet, Google wants its users to visit the websites that host these images and bring traction to their pages, thus generating revenue for websites.
However, if you are looking for a way to download the images by not going through this long process, there’s still a way to download the photos on google in the old way on PCs. Simply click on the photo you want to download, right-click on it and select the Open image in new tab button. The image will open in another tab and then you can follow the earlier procedure to download.
