google blurry logoMany of you are thinking before reading this that this story is about a Google brand image thing - nope - it is about their Google Image search product.

A week or so ago we reported that some images on Google Image search were blurry despite the fact that the original image source was not. It created a bad searcher experience for users and upset some publishers who were proud of their high quality images.

Google's AJ said they have begun rolling out a fix for the blurry image search bug on Sunday. AJ wrote:

Hi everyone, thanks for your patience here -- as some users have already been reporting today, the fix has been rolled out! We appreciate everyone's feedback as we looked into providing a solution. Thank you!

Of course, this took a really long time to fix from when it was originally reported as a problem in the forums. I missed it until now as well.
