Google unveiled a new image search interface earlier, and the main change was to make it easier to compare different photos.

The most intuitive difference is that after clicking the image, the original dark bar is expanded below, but now it is changed to the right bar. As a result, as you continue to scroll down, the previously selected image will remain on the right side, allowing you to compare it with the new one.

If the image you clicked on is from a shopping site and is marked as “commodity”, the right column will also display additional information, including brand, price, availability and evaluation. This should be more effective in assisting buyers to narrow down to specific products when purchasing products with multiple items (eg porcelain plates).

“For retailers and publishers, this updated interface also means people are more likely to visit a web page to get information to help them with a task, or to buy a product on your site,” Google wrote in a blog post.

This seems to be a good improvement for the practicality of image search (especially in the search for images), and it can bring a little more experience similar to the product in the store.
