This post is not about the Google layout update that took place about the month ago. A Google Image Search index update took place over the weekend.
A Digital Point Forum thread has discussion:
Anyone notice some large changes in the amount of traffic they are recieving from google images? Mine was cut in half overnight. Its not really high conversion traffic, but I am still wondering.
Yup noticed a drop as well…..around 75% drop for me…not that it matters..image traffic is pretty worthless for me.

Well, we were knocked from 4000+ original photos to about 167 in July. That's crawled up to 327 in the last few weeks.
