Hi, I just want to suggest putting in an "Images" section to the search, like Google. :D

Images

Last Updated: Jan 03, 2012 08:22PM EST
We are working on ways to incorporate more images in the search results.
 
In the mean time, you can use our !bang syntax to search for images using other search engines without having to change the search bar. For example, !i bags would search for bags on Google images. The full list of commands are on our !bang page. These shortcuts are also available via the drop down next to the search box.

Right now, some images will appear in our Zero-click Info boxes -- the box that often appears above the search results. Sometimes, for popular topics, there is another link under the image in that box entitled HQ Images, which links to high quality images on Fotopedia.
 
just use i or image !bangs for now.

Is there a way to search only images in DuckDuckGo Next?

Hello @jwalantsoneji
So, is what you'd like to see an images specific search page (something like images.duckduckgo.com), where only images are displayed for the search that was entered? I know that this has been discussed by the Devs, but I don't know what the current status it. I can tell you that the last I'd heard, it was not a dead topic and the idea does have merit. We'll let you know if something pops on this.

Thanks!

Yes!

Interestingly, this page exists: images.duckduckgo.com :-)
It says: (Oops, there was an error. Please try again. If it persists, please email ops@duckduckgo.com) when tried to search.
Will wait for official page/facility to come in.

That's actually a set of servers where we get images from, but it isn't an actual image destination. We'd really like to keep one search results page but instead find better ways for you to jump into images directly on the results page. Right now if you add images to your search it should pop on the answer bar automatically, and we're actively talking internally about ways to force grid view and maybe how to stay in the mode.

For now, you can search Ixquick Images using “!iximg” for privacy-respecting image search.
