How to view copies of an image

Most images on the internet have copies (duplicates). Copies can be exactly the same or differ slightly (for example, some might be framed or have different sizes). To ensure that search results are as diverse as possible, Yandex doesn't display multiple copies of images on the search results page.

Links to different sizes of the same image can be found in the drop-down list to the right of the image. To view a copy of an image you found, click the link to the appropriate size (the largest size (in pixels), is always at the top of the list). The image will open in a separate window.

If you need help finding a copy of a specific image, go to the Image search section.

How to open images on a separate page

To open an image in a new page, click Open in the image view window.

Why isn't an image loading?

An image may not load if it isn't available via a direct link, or if access has been restricted on the site where it was posted. In these situations, we recommend that you view the image on its source page.

Why does the image take so long to load

The image may take a long time to load if the browser is slow. If you use Yandex Browser, try temporarily disabling all extensions, Turbo mode, and Alice's voice activation. Delete the cache, history, and cookies.
