Well I am getting some kind of new layout in Google Image Search, is it only me or they changed sometime back and I got it now?

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.com.pk/search?num=10&hl=en&site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1535&bih=818&q=test&oq=test&gs_l=img.12..0l10.1274.1648.0.2202.4.4.0.0.0.0.125.405.3j1.4.0...0.0...1ac.1.C39-_bzJpEo&qscrl=1#imgrc=hhHGtZOwyyoZPM%3A%3BBWOfdLbqbxFC7M%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.indraneelghosh.com%252Fimg%252Fsport%252Fsport_318_test-201.gif%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.indraneelghosh.com%252Fsports%252Fsport_science%252F28%3B1646%3B828
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

But why waste so much space for a larger preview with nothing on the majority of the screen? Why not do it like Bing, which shows you the preview on mouse over, with even some minor options?

Its rather impressive. I dont see how anyone could not like it. Its faster to preview the images than before.

Too many clicks for search options. I haven't liked this for a while now.

the new layout probably aimed for small device screen, but forced on large-screened desktop users.

I don't like how you can't turn off safe search now without adding the word porn to your image search. How am I suppose to 'accidently' browse porn at work now?

I'm starting to get annoyed with how web pages have to do so much now days. That was what made Google so good, it's simplicity, and they are quickly losing that. I don't want a picture to pop out and show a preview when I mouse over (Bing), I don't want the page to split open to show a preview when click it (New Google), I just want the list of damn pictures, and when I click on one, open it. Oh well though, what are you gonna do! Just wait for the latest fad of pop outs and sliding web pages blows over and we go for minimalistic again.
