The Old Image Search, Still Available

The old Google Image Search interface is still available in the OneBox result that's displayed for some Google searches like [tropical birds] or [europe map]. If you add "image", "images", "photo" or "photos" to your query, Google will show 4 times more image results. It's like a simplified image search interface inside the regular Google Search.

  2. I actually tried the exact same search "snow bird images" and didn't get the image OneBox. I then tried other trigger words like photos and pictures. Still no image OneBox.

  3. Sorry about my previous comment. I had not read well. "simplified image search interface INSIDE the regular Google Search"
    The key is the INSIDE word. And... as usual... you are right!
