"Yahoo Image Search Launches New Design, Galleries and Facebook Tab"
From the Yahoo Blog:
The new search results page sports a neatly tiled look, with each image equally sized, then becoming larger when you hover over one.
In addition to displaying the images from the web, the new Image Search includes three new category tabs to better categorize and present the images that interest you:
- Latest: The “Latest” tab will automatically appear for image search results of trending topics, such as images of events, celebrities and news. For example, the “Latest” tab appears in a “President Obama” search shown below.
- Galleries: The “Galleries” tab will appear for image search results that include photo galleries from Yahoo! News, Flickr and OMG.
- Facebook: If you choose to connect your Facebook account with Yahoo! Image Search, a “Facebook” tab will automatically appear if your search results include matches from your Facebook friends’ name, photo album names or album descriptions.
One of the most significant changes we’ve made to Yahoo! Image Search is the way images are displayed and navigated. By clicking on any image on the search results page, the image will appear on a fresh page allowing users to browse effortlessly through full-size images with a simple click on the desktop browser.
