A lot of people blocked Google from displaying their images offsite when Google took it upon themselves to show the full size image. I'd imagine this may be part of the reason for a reduction in the available images Google has to display. On the other hand, it is possible that Google is tired of sending any image traffic to sites that Google does not itself own. I have not personally seen much of a difference, but there are youtube images in the few queries I just checked before posting.
