Tinycards Question: Adding pictures to tinycards via google image search.. gone?

My question is pretty much in the title. I used to be able to add images quickly to my tinycards decks by clicking the 'do a web search' (or something like that) option. It was a really quick convenient way to add pictures to my personal tiny cards and one thing I really liked about tiny cards over Memrise.. where adding pictures is a multi step whole process. Now the only options I have are 'take a photo' or 'use photo library'. I don't have the space to save new photos to my library. Is the quick google image search option gone now or is it just a glitch?

Well, it seems is not a glitch anymor. That's what I thought before reading your comment. I went through the same experience. I used to add photos directly from Google in no time but, to my surprise, I couldn't do it last week so I had to add the step of saving them in the library first, taking me more than double the time. I hope Duolingo reconsiders bringing it back if they really want teachers to use tinycards. I am very disappointed right now! :(

Same here. I used to use this to teach my autistic boy to improve his speech, understanding, and categorizing, among other things.
