Getty and Google Reach Settlement—Say Goodbye to 'View image' Button
17 February, 2018, 01:56
The changes will ultimately mean users are more likely to visit the sites where images they like are hosted, thereby helping drives revenues for the site through ad views and increase the overall exposure of the website.
The above change can also be considered to be the fallout of a recent arrangement Google went for with Getty that will let the latter's photos to feature in Google Images.
Worry not, because you could still be able to view/download most of the images but you have to visit the webpage for that.
The button formerly functioned as a direct link to the image in question, allowing users to bypass the hosting web site itself. For company news and announcements, visit our Press Room, and for the stories and inspiration behind our content, visit Stories & Trends. Previously, it was possible to click on a given image's resolution text to be whisked away to another search which listed all occurrences of that image throughout Google, at different resolutions.
In a statement, Getty Images said: "We are pleased to announce that after working cooperatively with Google over the past months, our concerns are being recognised and we have withdrawn our complaint".
In addition to this, Google has also removed the "Search by Image" option.
As part of the settlement, Google now has a multi-year license to use Getty's images in its own products, but several changes had to be made. If a user clicks an image to expand it in the results, they can then right-click on the image and click the option to open the image in a new tab-where they can then save the image.
Another change that is going unnoticed is the removal of the "Search Google with this image" option when right clicking on an image while on a website. This opens the web page the image is posted on and may require that users click on the image again to view a larger copy of it. Not surprisingly, Getty's photos could be found all throughout Google Images, helped by the fact that there's an absolute ton of them. Google has always been on the hit list of photographers who felt their images were being taken without consent and circumvent copyright and trademark.
