One of the most common ways to find a image on the internet is Google Images, and some modifications have been made recently. One lately found shift to Google Images was the removal of a search filter that enabled users to discover precise size pictures.
The toolbar at the top of every search for Google Images has a range of multiple filters including size, color, usage rights, type of picture, and also when downloaded. These make narrowing down your search much easier to locate an picture that suits your requirements.
Over the previous few days, however, Google sometimes removed the option of filtering an image search by the precise size of the photo or a minimum resolution. These alternatives have been accessible at this stage in Google Images for several years, and we’re not completely sure why they were suddenly removed by Google. The change appears to be common from what we can say, with a Reddit thread gathering comments on the problem.
Google may be looking to substitute the function, but we’re not sure for the time being. Fortunately, the removal is a way around. If you’re heading to the Advanced Image Search feature of Google, you can still filter by sizes bigger than certain megapixel counts, but there’s no capacity to filter by precise size here.
Slightly hilariously, Microsoft’s Bing still offers image filtering of the precise size.
If you’re curious where this feature was used, finding appropriate wallpapers or images at a very particular resolution is a helpful tool for many. It may not be the most commonly used tool, but it is a functionality that many will miss.
