Image search for large images?

It was hard enough to find hi-res wallpaper before, but now both Google and Bing seem to have taken away my ability to specify the resolution of images to search. Now they only have options like "Small," "Large," "Wallpaper," etc., even in the advanced search.

And their definitions of "Large" and "Wallpaper" are unhelpful when I have a 2880x1800 screen to fill.

Anyone else notice these options missing? Any other way to search for hi-res images?

I still have an 'exactly' option in GIS, so could search for exactly 2880x1800, or common resolutions in pro?

(Anything related to Evangelion 3.0 specifically... only thing I've found so far is this, which is visibly scanned from a poster or similar source, so not the prettiest as wallpaper.)

Weird. Perhaps they're rolling out some kind of change? I'm using Chrome, too, so it's possible certain features only exist in that browser, or maybe there's some extension hiding it?

EDIT: Any help?

Just tried in Chrome. Same as in Safari. I got nothing.

Dammit, everything is vertical. C'mon, Khara, make some widescreen posters.

I'm in the US.

Yup, when I go to google.co.uk or google.ca, I get the old options back.

Watch out, they might be coming for you, too.

In google (chrome) you can add "size 2880x1800" to the "evangelion" to refine the search.

have you tried searching via duck duck go? (Just in case it is a filtering issue.)

The old options now appear in my google image search.

I checked the UK and Canada google sites, and they've changed, too. It seems they were changing the UI, but released it in the US before they'd added all the old options into it.
