Google Updates Image Search Results With Bigger Pictures

EnhancedImageSearchGoogle has long included image results in general searches. Over the next day, it's tweaking the way those results are shown, with the best-matching images appearing larger in results.

Google's blog explains the concept pretty simply: "When we're confident that we have great image results, we'll now show a larger image and additional smaller images alongside." According to Google, the change will appear over the next 24 hours; it doesn't seem to have hit the company's Australian servers as I write this.

For complex image searches, using Google's dedicated interface is still likely to be more helpful, especially since it now offers options for finding similar images and searching by size and colour.
