How to add 'view image' back to Google Images

However, a new Chrome extension fixes this in the simplest of ways: It brings back the "View Image" button exactly where it was before Google removed it.

Recently, Google took its users by surprise when it announced the removal of "View Image" button in image search results.

The functionality is also enabled by another extension called Google Search "View Image" button (Chrome, Firefox).

Users can still download pictures from Google but now they have to visit the site it is hosted on, rather than simply opening the images in a new tab from their browser.

This year's exercises were delayed to avoid clashing with the Pyeongchang Winter Games in the South last month. The drills are expected to wrap up ahead of the North-South Korea Summit scheduled to be held in late April.

Speaking about the changes, a spokesperson for Google said: "For those asking, yes, these changes came about in part due to our settlement with Getty Images this week".

Thankfully there's an easy way to restore the button, and if you're looking for pictures, remember that Google's not the only game in town.

Now if you want to download an image, you'll have to visit the site and scroll down to find it.

It might not always feel like it, but Google isn't the only search engine in town.

Of course, numerous simple methods for copying pictures from a Google Image search will remain, especially if you use popular Windows-based browsers like Google Chrome and Firefox, and the new Microsoft Edge browser.

Some frustrated users took to Twitter to express their helplessness and anger at the loss of this feature. "It also advances our mission to move the world with images".

In a Twitter tweet, Google said the decision is meant to strike a balance between serving user needs and adhering to publishers' concerns. It's now available for Firefox and Chrome, with the raw code available to for your perusal on GitHub.

Another user, Mike GmCity, said: "I hate that I now have to use a third-party app to be able to do something I use several times a day". It is a small change, to be sure, but it could have major implications in regards to the way users interact with images on the web. Additionally, Google also removed the "Search by Image" button that appeared when users opened up an image.
