i searched for some images on google.de and found that they were showing a complete web page, which was having the image. They didn't even create it in background, as they were doing earlier here.
for google.fr, the things were same as we all earlier (worldwide). they are still showing page in background.
It probably means that google fears the copyrights trouble in Germany.
