    I use Googles Image search all the time and usually start by specifying 2meg files
    and then working my way down. It seems they have gutted that option to "large, medium, small"
    :(
    Are there any other image search sites worth using?

    You can still search by megapixels and custom resolution. I don't think I've ever seen a filter for file size on it.

    Are you sure? There should be a drop down box with other sizes as shown on this attachment. I am using Chrome

    Its still there, just hidden in a menu. While doing an image search, select TOOLS > SIZE > LARGER THAN > And scroll to the size you need.

    Whoops. Looks like The Vector DoctorThe Vector Doctor beat me to it.

    Are you running any plugins/extensions etc on your browser that could be "gumming" things up for you?

    When you are in the images screen go to MORE TOOLS (to the right of where you show in your pic) and Check mark ALL SIZES. This should bring it up.

    Yep, Thanks! I disabled all extensions and cleared cookies & now it's fixed, so it was one or both of these.

    I'll have to start checking out Bing again. Quit using it a few years ago after Google started filtering out the porn automatically but Bing didn't.

    Cougar head can bring up some VASTLY different image results...

    I'm having the same issue – only 4 size options (Any size, Large, Medium, Icon). Clearing cookies and logging out doesn't fix it.

    Google probably decided there were too many options and they wanted to simplify it. Most likely you're all going to have the same issue soon. When Google makes changes like this, I think they usually roll it out to a smaller percentage of users first before changing it for everyone.

    Anyway, it's only a small annoyance as long as they keep the options in the Advanced Search page. Otherwise I'll have to switch to Bing.

    Could be, I got it to work right after clearing cookies, the next day it reverted back & now nothing fixes it.

    The variable size is not under Tools; it's under Settings>Advanced Search
