Screenshot Yahoo UK image search

BySylvie FodorImages search engines have rolled out changes in image display. New features infringe copyright in some countries and dramatically affect website traffic and image sales everywhere. In Germany, trade body Freelens has been successful in forcing Yahoo Images to revert to its former display.

Yahoo has implemented an image search allowing display of the images on Yahoo pages in full uncompressed size. In fact, images are very often shown in larger format on Yahoo than on the original website. Search results link directly to the image file rather than to the webpage with the image in context. Metadata is poor if not inexistent.
