Whether product images from the manufacturer, an app logo in large resolution or simply the new background image for the Mac desk: it was easier to display high-resolution images in their original size in the Google image search. After a change at the beginning of 2018, Google prevented the option of simply calling up the graphic with just one click (probably due to complaints about the loss of visitors to the source websites or due to copyright and distribution disputes). Now you can still proceed via “Open image in new tab” (Safari, Chrome) or “Show graphic” (Firefox) - but if that doesn't work, you can View Image Plugin use.
If you do not only want to look at the small, low-resolution preview images in the Google image search, but also display high-resolution images, you can do this quickly by right-clicking - provided, of course, the graphic file is available in a correspondingly high resolution at the specified source. Simply proceed as follows:
View Image is the name of the alternative if the above procedure does not work for you. So if you have problems displaying an image from Google Image Search in its original size, then it might be worth installing. Because if you cannot enlarge a found image and then first have to go to the website on which it is integrated, it can happen that you have to scroll and click through umpteen pages and masses of images until you find what you are looking for. Not only does this cost time and nerves. Anyone who surfs and works on the go and is dependent on the data volume of the mobile phone contract or slow WLAN from train, hotspot, etc., will not be happy about this route.
View Image brings the "Show image" button back to the list of options that you can execute in the image search using Google. So once you've found the picture, graphic or icon that you want to display in high resolution, select it, click on "Show picture" and enjoy the simplicity that was inherent in the search engine before 2018;) Here are two more Sample pictures to show you how it all works:
Of course, this advisory article should not be a help for the workflow in digital image theft. If you are looking for graphics for personal research, looking for a new wallpaper or for product images to form a purchase decision, using the Google image search to display images in their original size and perhaps save them locally, you will not go wrong. However, if you are looking for images, graphics, logos, product images, screenshots, samples and the like for your website, shop, blog, social media marketing and so on, you should make sure that the displayed images are released for reuse. What is behind it and what alternatives to Google there are, I have summarized for you here: Free, royalty-free photos and images for bloggers and webmasters.
