Has Google Image Search changed?


Recommended Posts

Is it my imagination or has Google image Search changed?

Previously searching Google using an image (right-click menu option in chrome or upload an image here: https://images.google.com/) return a number of matching thumbnails that you could click on.

Now I seem to get a load of textual links which don't really match my image.

 

Do other people see this?

Just searched for one of my pics using Google search and the results mean the Google search is useless.  Shame.

 

Yes, that's about the size of it from my perspective too. And I guess the "reported images" threads will suffer as a consequence too.

Exactly.  Why 'fix' something which isn't broken?  The mind boggles.

I'm just hypothesising... wasn't there a thread on this forum some time ago about Alamy/Getty (forget which) taking Google to Court because they find stock photos which people then steal (knowingly or otherwise)? This is the sort of thing which could make Google make changes.

 

I believe it was this that I was thinking of:

Anyway.. my response was just a potential answer to Colblimp's rhetorical question!
