I wonder what size image they will use since, when I tested it last weekend, it showed up to about a 600 x 600 and anything larger was shown smaller. For the last year or so all of my images have been watermarked and created either at 600 x 800 or 800 x 600 ... different widget images for different widget purposes in case you're wondering.
Size of selected (one click) images on result page is resizable, it depends of your screen resolution (They use responsive web design). Maximum (I have 1920 px res.) is about 1100px width but can resize automatically if you use mobile devices, tablets etc.
Big problem is that google serve your big picture in results - full size, using traffic of your server and people who search thru images (google results) tend to fast inspect/preview many pics before maybe click on one...maybe click!... and why should even click when they already have big size picture and how to attract people to visit your website with this new system...
You will spend more traffic I'm 100% confident in it, and don't earn money at all from image search!
New Google image search is content farm on steroids !
