Have you worked with Google’s Image Search? I found many a photo execs pic there when I couldn’t track it down anywhere else. (It’s amazing how many companies in the photo industry have websites without pictures of their latest products or important personnel.) Now that task may get even easier, as the Web search leader has once again tweaked it photo finding features.
“People looking for images on Google often want to browse through many images, looking both at the images and their metadata,” the company says. “Based on feedback from both users and webmasters, we redesigned Google Images to provide a better search experience. In the next few days, you’ll see image results displayed in an inline panel so it’s faster, more beautiful, and more reliable. You will be able to quickly flip through a set of images by using the keyboard. If you want to go back to browsing other search results, just scroll down and pick up right where you left off.”
• Metadata will now appear underneath the image in the search results, instead of redirecting users to a separate landing page.
• Key information will be featured much more prominently next to the image: the title of the page hosting the image, the domain name it comes from, and the image size.
