Google Images is testing a new image preview

over 3 years ago from , Director of Design


Gotta be honest, the experience is pretty horrible IMO. The image preview is always a fixed width regardless of the image size or aspect ratio, causing the suggested images to sometimes be more visually dominate than the image you selected. Combine that with the white background overlay, and the visual overload is extremely frustrating and headache inducing.

    Quite bad, indeed! But at least they are experimenting with an overlay. They used to provide an overlay-based UI, but then they've abandoned this approach, in favour of the terrible page based approach that you can still see today. The reason for doing so is beyond of my comprehension. My browser is set to search for images on bing, not on google.
