Bing Rolls Out New Image Search UI

Today, Microsoft Bing rolled out its updated Image search UI for customers around the world. The new UI is more attractive and easy to use than ever before. Following are the four main things delivered to customers,

Bigger thumbnails – We’ve made our results much larger so you can find exactly what you want with fewer clicks. We trimmed out all our empty whitespace and filled it with pictures to make image search more visual.

Magnifying glass – When you hover on an image, you’ll immediately get a blown up preview that follows your mouse around. You can hold up this “magnifying glass” to any picture and see its size, title, and where it comes from. It’s smooth, fluid, and a little bit addictive.

Filter bar – You shouldn’t have to hunt to find what you want. That’s why we made it easier than ever to reach Bing’s advanced search tools. Along the top, you can find filters for searching by size, color, type, layout, and faces. It’s never been easier to find wide photographs of purple flowers.

Search suggestions – When you typed “Chicago”, did you want the city or the sports team? Are you looking for the skyline or a map? To help you search more effectively, we suggest refinements that make your query more specific so you find what you need faster. We completely revamped these related searches to make them higher quality and more relevant for everyday tasks.
