Bing Feature Update: New UX streamlines finding the perfect image

Whether it’s introducing completely new ways to browse pictures with things like “Infinite Scroll” or helping you filter images by color and composition, a more intuitive and visual image search experience has always been a big focus for us.  

To that end, this week we’re excited to introduce improvements in how Bing presents and organizes your image results.  

The first thing you will notice is our new Instant Answer that organizes a rich collage of images directly into the main results page. Once you click through to the “images” page you will notice that we’ve populated the tabs with the most common search queries associated with a given image.

Instead of making you qualify that you’re looking for (Casablanca, Morocco or Casablanca, the movie), we have organized the tabs so that one simple click gets you to what you’re looking for. 

 

 

Stay tuned for more from us.  In the meantime, let us know what you think.

    dont like the dumbed down version of the new image search. (no similar /size search as pradeep highlighted)

    quick fix it before google claimed they invented the feature.

    +i dont like the tiny grayish border between the image.

    You've effectively eliminated the ability to open different images in tabs from the initial search results.  That functionality wasn't great in the initial Bing Images results, but now it's completely frustrating.  The ability to compare the quality of similar images quickly is something I'm interested in, not a one-by-one view with micropreviews.  I do hope you bring it back as a selectable option.

    I agree with the other posters here. This change effectively negated the one big advantage that Bing had over Google Image Search for me: the find similar images function. Also, being able to open each result in a new tab as mentioned by driver1775 is essential. I switched from Google to Bing for image searches specifically for the former, though the latter is equally critical. Unfortunately with these changes, I now have to go back to GIS to get these functions.
