Introducing Timeline in Image Search

Timeline is a fun way to explore images if you are one of those users who just don't want to miss a single new image of your favorite celebrity, sports-star, automobile, gadget, event or trends in fashion. Users can choose to view latest images, oldest images, or changes over time.

If you are a big fan of Tiger Woods, with one click you could browse his images from various tournaments he has played in past one year. The first screenshot is the image search results page for Tiger Woods.

If you click on any one of the spikes in the timeline, you will see how we show timeline for the particular month you just selected. For example, if you click on October you will see tiger woods images from the Ryder Cup held in Europe.

Early November you will see images from WGC-HSBC Champions event in Shanghai

Mid November
you will see images from JBWere Masters, held near Melbourne, Australia

Early December
you will see images from Chevron World Challenge held in California

January last week you will see images from Farmers Insurance Open held near San Diego

and so on....

Enhancing user experience on image search has always been our top priority. With the Timeline feature we have taken just another step in that direction.
