Users spot redesigned Google Image search results design
Did you see the new white preview boxes for Google Image Search? Google may be preparing to launch a new design for image search.
Google seems to be testing a new design and user interface for Google Images , which has been spotted and screen-shotted by users. The new interface has rounded filter bubbles at the top, which suggest ways to filter your image searches. It also offers a new preview for the image you selected.
Instead of showing that image on a black background under the image, Google is showing that image on a white background on the right side of the page.

Several people shared screen shots of this design on social media and other places, suggesting that it’s a fairly sizeable test if it is one.
Postscript: Here is another variation of this design test, this one overlays the preview over the image search results:
