As Father’s Day is being celebrated worldwide, search engine Google has decided to mark the occasion in a unique manner. It has paid tribute to all the fathers with an animated doodle.
On the homepage of Google, visitors are greeted with a doodle with fathers, not only belonging to the human world, but from animal kingdom as well, taking care of their respective little ones.
The third alphabet of the word “Google” has been animated. It has a play button on it, which upon pressing changes to depict different fathers, including a male penguin with its egg, a male fox, cat with its little ones, and finally a man with his son.
The theme of this doodle is similar to the one generated on Mother’s Day.
“Today’s Doodle represents the universality of familial love. I had a few separate concepts, some with animals, some with people, and looking at them all, I thought it would be fun to try to tie them together,” Olivia Huynh the creator of the doodle was reported as saying by media outlets.
After partnering with Getty images google no longer has it’s ‘view image’ button.
The button was extremely useful for users since when you’re searching for a picture, there’s a very good chance that you want to take it and use it for something
The Visit button remains, so users can see images in the context of the web pages they’re on.
San Francisco: In a move to curb the lifting of copyrighted images from its platform, Google has removed the “view image” button from its image search results. “Today we’re launching some changes on Google Images to help connect users and useful websites.
“This will include removing the View Image button. The Visit button remains, so users can see images in the context of the web pages they’re on,” Google Search Liaison tweeted on Friday. The change is seen as part of Google’s partnering with stock photo provider Getty Images.
Google last week signed a multi-year global licensing deal with Getty Images, allowing it to use Getty’s content within its various products and services. According to a report in The Verge, Google will make copyright attribution and disclaimers more prominent in image search results.
Now, users have to wait for a website to load and then scroll through it to find the image. “The change is essentially meant to frustrate users. Google has long been under fire from photographers and publishers who felt that image search allowed people to steal their pictures, and the removal of the view image button is one of many changes being made in response,” the report said.
Websites sometimes disable the ability to right-click, too, which would make it even harder for someone to grab a photo they’re looking for. “Fortunately, there’s still at least one way around it: if you right click, you can select “open image in new tab” or “view image” (or whatever your browser’s equivalent option is), and you’ll still open up the full-size picture,” the report added.
In addition to removing the ‘view image’ button, Google has also removed the ‘search by image’ button that appeared when people opened up an image.
