Can we have the option to block urls and/or stock images from image search? Andy Andy Andy 2/11/14 12:09 PM
For a while now Google image search has been polluted with watermarked and pixelated images from stock photo sites but there's no feature to remove these types of images or block URLs that flood the results. It's really frustrating to search for an image at a high resolution only to find after you click on a thumbnail that it's a pixelated mess with a giant 123rf.com watermark across it.

I was hoping for an image search filter that turns on or off stock images and allows certain urls to be blocked.

Thanks!

I totally agree. This is a very frustrating situation to find yourself in when you're looking for a high quality image, have a limited amount of time, and have to wade through a bunch of low quality images and sometimes end up clicking on things that are dead ends.

Additionally, I would like to be able to filter by photo/picture resolution.  And then by photo restrictions.  Being able to restrict specific URLs/domains would be helpful and if too many people want to block that domain drop them down in the search rankings.  Some photos are copyrighted and shouldn't be used unless the usage rights are purchased.
