Because SmartFrame is rendered using <canvas>, it is not readable by image search engines, giving us the freedom to serve a custom thumbnail – small-size .jpg file generated from the original image – to be displayed in the search results.

  • You can adjust the maximum size of the thumbnail which will appear in the image search – there are three thumbnail widths you can select from 200px, 400px or 600px.
  • Additionally, you can add a custom watermark to the thumbnail to further protect your image.
  • This settings are global and will apply to all your embeds. This also means that if you disable search engine indexing, none of your SmartFrames will be indexed and visible in Image Search Results.
Delay warning
The changes you made in the Control Search Engine settings will not be immediately visible in the Google Image Search Results. How long it takes exactly depends on when the page with the embedded SmartFrame is indexed by Google. For that reason for some SmartFrame embeds updating these settings may take longer than for others, depending on the page where they are embedded.
