Google Redesigns Images Again, Adds Keyboard Browsing & More Accessible Metadata [Updates]

Ads by Google

Google has announced yet another change to Google Images, this one aimed at making images easier to browse and making important image information more accessible. The redesign will include an inline panel where you’ll be able to see images, complete with metadata, and flip through them using your keyboard.

When browsing images, you’ll be able to visit the hosting webpage, view the original, and see more image details with one click. Information such as title of the hosting website, hosting domain and image size will be displayed next to each image as you flip through the results. As usual, the new interface will roll out to users over the next several days, so you may encounter it next time you search for images, but don’t be surprised if it’s not there yet.

In addition, image information will also be displayed underneath each image in the search results, saving you from having to click through to a separate page in order to find out more. If you’ve been using Google Images a lot, you’re familiar with the way the hosting website used to load in the background every time you clicked on an image – this will no longer be the case, and according to Google, will speed up the user experience and reduce loading times.

Can you see the new interface yet? Do you like it?
