Making $10,000 a Pixel: Optimizing Thumbnail Images in Search Results :: UXmatters

This is a very detailed and helpful article about all the various issues that come up when designing product pictures for search results listings. The word "optimizing" is used for the UI results from local search, rather than anything to do with image compression or SEO. It also has excellent example screenshots, and a bibliography. Highly recommended.
