Noticed over the past few days when searching images via Google one can no longer "view image". Options are now limited to either "visit" or "share". This and there is now a prominent message that images "may be subject to copyright.."

For those tired of seeing pictures of things in their collection showing up on CL and so forth, it does seem as if changes were made.

Happily, if you use the Chrome browser, you can install this extension which adds "view image" to the search results again.

No need for extentions...

Just right-click and select "copy image location" then paste that in another tab or the current address bar.

*Note, these are the instructions for Firefox, these might vary for other browsers.

Found a "View Image" extension for Firefox

It only works on the default picture in the preview window but it's better than nothing.  If you click on a related image thumbnail to the right, the View Image button will still open the original image.

A simple right click and "Save Image" works fine for me on the page google opens.  I'm using a fork of Firefox, Pale Moon, and it has not been a problem to grab an image if I want.


BTW, if anyone hates the "new" Firefox look, Pale Moon is based on the older Firefox circa release 27-29.  it is updated and secure, uses many of the Firefox extensions, but in some cases only the older versions.
