It used to take just a couple of clicks to save awesome pictures you see on Google Images. Later Sullivan admitted that "these changes came about in part due to our settlement with Getty Images this week" and that "they are created to strike a balance between serving user needs and publisher concerns, both stakeholders we value".

Google removed the "view image" button from the search results appearing on Google Images on Thursday upon reaching a deal with Getty Images. Earlier this month, the two companies announced a new partnership that allowed Getty Images to appear in Google Images.
