As such, the company is making a small change to the user interface for showing results related to image searches. If you wanted to see the rest of the website, you had to use another option, "Visit Site".
Earlier, users would be given the option to 'Save image as.' when right-clicked on an image, but the new formats do not provide users with such option.

The Verge also argues that this could drive more traffic to the website sources of the images, considering that some people will attempt to actually visit the website in order to view the content in its full size. The decision about the change was likely made in response to the deal with Getty Images that Google settled last week. However, it is a difficult task as some of the websites disable the ability to right-click, which will make it harder for users to download an image. In fact, the removal of the "view image" button might seem too trivial considering the ease with which images can still be accessed.
Google, in a tweet, says that "the Visit button remains, so users can see images in the context of the webpages they're on". However, the Reverse image search feature still works, which is available in the search bar of Google and you can easily track the image source by uploading it or by simply dragging it to the search bar.
