The volume of images available online has increased significantly but the choices offered by image retrieval systems have not kept pace. We describe the design and evaluation of a ’high density’ im-age search interface focusing on the results pages. We quantitatively and qualitatively compared image presentation on a high density interface with a traditional image search interface. Our re-sults show that users had major problems with high-density interfaces for images due to infor-mation overload. We point to further work which could improve the user experience.
