Still getting the "old" layout. Most likely a slow roll out like most of their site updates.

Personally I prefer the current layout, the new one in the image above looks like it's taking up a lot of space unnecessarily.

Yeah I noticed that a couple days ago. I like it. I hated how it was before, so I usually used Bing for image searches.

I preferred it when they had the black left sidebar with all the options, the way they have it now is a PITA to choose something like "Results from the last 12 months"

I know its only 2 or 3 clicks but the layout is much more awkward imo

Same with Google's geneal search. You now have to click "More" or "Search tools", which is silly when I'm using a monitor with a 1680x1050 resolution. Lots of wasted space.

Yep exactly, lets hope they change all of their search tools along with the image one

wtf. So 3/4 of the page is taken up for the image even if its small? I know I'm probably gonna get banned for saying this but its ugly.

I just used it and still have the old design. I never had a problem with it, works like a charm.

Love the new design though, can't wait to get it!

The new format is just wrong. I don't like it. I think I'm going to start using Bing image search.

Everything about Google is just wrong. I use it but I don't like it. YouTube is different as well.

I thought that when i saw the image too, but I just tried it out: http://www.google.co...e%2F28;1646;828
Its actually pretty awesome! you get to see the large previews without changing page, if once you see it larger its not what you want. just scroll down and click another image and you get to see it bigger too
its a huge improvement IMO
its making better use of the space and you don't need to go back/forward all the time
