How to get back 'exact size' and 'larger than' search filters on Google Images

It's been more than seven months since Google Images got rid of some of its most useful search parameters, to the dismay of many. While we first hoped the change could be a bug or temporary, it's now become clear that this was an intentional decision on Google's side. Every few days, I go looking for the "exact size" or "larger than" search options, then quickly remember that they've disappeared and switch into one of my backup plans. In this post, I'll look at the different parameters that Google removed and how you can replicate their functionality in various ways.

Google can now automatically group your dank memes (and some other stuff) on mobile

You've been able to save images on Google's app and mobile site without downloading them for a long time now. Last September, that functionality extended to non-image pages, and in April, customizable collections rolled out to replace saved pages. Now, certain image searches trigger the Google app to ask if you'd like to create a collection for the thing you're searching for — and images that fit the bill automatically save to the appropriate collection.

Google Image Search adds badges to denote recipes, products, and more

If you're looking for a particular image of something, Google search is a powerful tool. Sometimes you might be looking for more than just the image itself, though, and that often leads to scrolling through a ton of photos and opening up the ones you hope will lead you to the right content.

eBay will soon let you search for products using images instead of words

Searching on eBay isn't the easiest thing to do now. The search engine looks at literal results for your words and doesn't take into consideration typos, interchangeable words ("bag" and "purse"), multiple languages and translations ("case" and "hülle"), and multiple product names ("Galaxy Tab S2 8.0" and "T710"). So you often end up missing listings because the seller didn't word the title exactly like what you thought to search for. But that's about to get better thanks to new image-based searches.

eBay just announced a new Image Search feature that leverages computer vision and deep learning to look at photos you upload to the app, recognize the object you're searching for, and surface corresponding results among the 1.1 billion listings on the site.
