Not sure how this used to work but have been paying attention lately as have been getting some of my images showing in the normal serps and am quite pleased. A page from my site may already be no 2 but it is also good to see an image a little way down the page. I see this as being to my benefit.
I dont pay too much attention to Bing but they appear to use the same images as Google, and I much prefer the way Google uses them.
