, you must have noticed some change in the images section. This change has been made by Google recently, and it has changed how the image search works.

                                Google Image Search

Google has made the decision to remove the ‘View Image’ button after signing an agreement with Getty, which is an American Stock Photo Agency.

Now, you will not ‘View Image’ in the Google search results. But, of course, this doesn’t mean that you will not be able to download your favorite images at all. However, many Google users have made their complaints regarding this in the Google web search help forums.

People are not satisfied with this change as previously, the ‘View Image’ button allowed them to expand images and save them. Unfortunately, Google image search won’t enlarge, which means that now if images are taking too much time to load or don’t show at all, then you will have to wait. You can also start an image search to see if the issue has been solved or not.

Moreover, the custom search results will differ from those shown by Google images even though you may have configured your search engine to search the web completely.

This was a problem acknowledged by Google. When you search for images, there was a time when the images will not zoom to full size in the preview. This issue is resolved and confirmed by Google.

Now that we are on the topic of image search, let me answer two questions related to image search.

1. Can you search for the content of the image.

2. How to build your image search engine.

Image Content Search

Image content is the text that is either embedded directly in the image. 

search image with text

In the above image, there is the text – Ambition is the path to success.  Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.  But can an image search engine search that?

Image search is said to improve rapidly in the coming years and this is going to bring a boost into the e-commerce industry. It is common knowledge that the e-commerce industry relies heavily on search. Woocommerce is a an upcoming e-commerce platform built on WordPress. This is turning out to be one of the best cms setup for Ecoommerce sites. If you are using woocommmerce for your site then you know it is a must to have a woocommerce search setup  well. Having a smart woocommerce search is always a boost to your site performance and improves conversion.

Getting a woocommerce product search has become very easy now. There are a lot of woocommerce product search plugin which one can install easily and use. These plugins will also take care of things like the woocommerce search results page and give it a nice and appealing look. Another important feature to look our for is teh predective search.

Google Photos' video capabilities often feel like a second-class citizen compared to still pics. While the app offers dozens of editing options for photos, you can only rotate or trim videos, and their playback experience is quite lacking. Skip and rewind buttons were added a while back then disappeared, and there are no controls to speak of, just a play/pause button. Another missing feature is the ability to zoom and pan in a video, but that is now starting to show up for some users.


If the feature is available on your device, you'll notice that you can double-tap to zoom any video so it fills the screen. Double-tapping again brings you back to the zoomed out view. You can also pinch to zoom, then move the zoomed video around to focus on a specific area. See it in action in the video below — look for the round white tap pointers to see how I'm interacting with the video.

The feature is rolling out as a server-side switch and doesn't seem to require a specific Google Photos version; I have a Pixel 4 XL and Pixel 5 running the same v5.27.0.353915353 of the app and logged in with the same account, but only the Pixel 5 can zoom in videos. On my Pixel 4 XL, no matter how much I double tap or pinch, nothing happens. I tried updating the app to the newer v5.28 release (APK Mirror), but that didn't force the option on. Your mileage may vary.

How do you zoom in on a picture on Android?

Pinch 2 or more fingers together or apart to adjust zoom. To zoom temporarily, quickly tap the screen 3 times and hold down your finger on the third tap. Drag your finger to move around the screen. Lift your finger to zoom out.

Why can't I zoom in on images?

If that resolution is too small (low resolution), the picture itself may already be at full size, and it's not possible to zoom in to view a larger size. If a photo is large enough (high resolution), you'll be able to zoom in once and see it at full size that way.
