Google’s Image Search

I must say I’m pretty impressed by Google’s new Image Search. There are a number of new features that are pretty cool. Google Image search now features instant scrolling. What this means is that instead of looking at a static image and then clicking a link to get to a new page users can now view images as one continuous scroll. This feature displays up to 1,000 images on a page

Users who search for an image will also notice a new hover feature. Search results can be previewed in a slightly larger size by simply hovering your mouse icon over an image. Also, when users select an image they will no longer be directed to a plain white page containing only the image. All Google search images now appear on a landing page that displays the image in context along with the website where the images are hosted. Users can still see an image in full size by clicking on the right-hand side.

The filter functions in Google Image Search might be my favorite. Not only can you filter images by size, you can filter for the type of image (faces, line drawings, clip art etc), and lastly by color. Users can filter for black and white images, but are also given an array of colors that they can filter for. By clicking on red for example Google Search will pull up images that are prominent in the color red.

The new Google Search is definitely worth checking out
