Google Removes Some Filters from Image Search Results

Google appears to have removed the ability to filter image search results by “minimum size,” “exact size,” and “full color.”

This change was made quietly, as there has been no official word from Google about removing the filters.

I only became aware of it thanks to a Reddit thread in which multiple people confirm they no longer have access to the filters in the main user interface.

Apparently, the filters are still available in the “advanced search” section which is accessed from the settings drop down menu.

However, the fact that the filters have been removed from the main UI is an indication they’re being deprecated.

This change is upsetting a lot of users, many of whom say they regularly used the image search filters.
