Yes, I see it now. I didn't when you first posted this. However, it is easy for me to tell since Google had somehow "lost" both of my sites in their previous update. Now, they are back.

Yep, can confirm huge changes since a day or two overhere...

Confirmed for Germany too. Probably related to the recent deep crawl [webmasterworld.com]? Are the images also spidered by googlebot or do they call it by another name?

pmkpmk, you should look for Googlebot-Image in your logs ("Googlebot-Image/1.0").
Speaking of that bot, I find strange that last time Googlebot-Image was on my site was mid-October, with no other hit from it since them. Spider in October, update in February, that seems rather slooooooooooow, doesn't it?

Great News! Google Image Search used to be among top 5 of our traffic source. In the last update. It dumped all our pictures from all 5 sites we own. Now they come back!;)
