However the changes are only cosmetic. Users can still search for the high resolution images through few extra clicks, such as putting the cursor on the image and clicking the right button on the mouse to "Open image in new tab" in Chrome, and "View Image" in Firefox. Reverse still works by dragging and dropping any image from the search result page to the search field on top.
Today we're launching some changes on Google Images to help connect users and useful websites. This will include removing the View Image button. The Visit button remains, so users can see images in the context of the webpages they're on. pic.twitter.com/n76KUj4ioD— Google SearchLiaison (@searchliaison) February 15, 2018
