Google Image Redux

Odd. While working on a little animation project last night, we were searching around on Google Images for reference files and noticed first that the entire page has undergone an overhaul, one we’re not very wild about. Highlights the image as you roll over it, instead of just placing all the info right there. Second, that link on the bottom of the page, leading to the new Google Image Labeler. It’s something of a game, pairing you with another user as you go through photos, trying to match your descriptions of the same image. The reason: “Just an interest in helping Google improve the relevance of image search results for users like yourself.” Smart idea.
