Unfortunately in this day and age other than the most frum websites it is impossible to go on a website and not see pictures of untzniusdig women. My question is, is there some way to selectively block images or something? For example I would like to use eBay but many times you open the home page and there’s pictures of untznius women there and I don’t want to see them. Is there some program or something I can do to protect myself yet still use sites like eBay?July 8, 2011 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm #824374rebbi gershonMember

Fix your internet exporer settings. It will totally minimize any skin images you may happen upon.July 10, 2011 2:54 am at 2:54 am #824376WIYMember
Thanks for the reply. Its so upsetting that every non Jewish website has to have Prust pictures on the main page.

by non Jews a picture of a woman in a swimsuit is “child appropriate” a frum male isn’t allowed to look at that…July 10, 2011 3:17 am at 3:17 am #824377DovBaruchMember
wiy: If you get a free firefox addon called Addblock Plus you can block almost all advertisements which is where most of the pictures you’re trying to avoid are.July 10, 2011 4:02 am at 4:02 am #824379rebbi1Participant
bor – is there a way to do that in firefox?July 10, 2011 4:07 am at 4:07 am #824380Bar ShattyaMember
with adblock plus you can right click on ANY image, even non-ads and block only that image or all images on that siteJuly 10, 2011 4:09 am at 4:09 am #824381HaLeiViParticipant
I believe Opera has a setting that remembers which pictures you don’t like. I made a script for InternetExplorer that when you right-click on an image and click on ‘Toss Image’, the picture disappears. If you’re interested I can post the code here with instructions. A practical advice is to keep the window small when you know you are going to such a site.July 10, 2011 4:52 am at 4:52 am #824382YW Moderator-42Moderator
Use the add-on AdBlockPlus in Firefox and FlashBlock. They will get rid of most. To get rid of all images use ImgLikeOpera. You can set filters in ImgLikeOpera to load pictures from sites like YWJuly 10, 2011 5:00 am at 5:00 am #8243832qwertyParticipant
There are many ways of doing it and I can keep writing for hours about it but I’m using cell phone for now so annoying to type.
For firefox use adblock, besides for blocking all ads it lets you block any picture or you might want to block the whole directory. site.com/promo/july.jpg then I suggest blocking promo dir not just july.jpg image.
For internet explorer use IE7pro.
Generally when going to ebay or any clothing store online search google and for a specific category like ebay computers an go to that specific category. Or start typing in your browser and go to suggested previously visited page instead of front page.July 10, 2011 5:25 am at 5:25 am #8243842qwertyParticipant
adblock blocks images not just ads, after install right click on any bad picture and you can block it or block the whole directory where that image is located.
for ie use ie7pro.
generally don’t go to front page of any clothing store, search google for a sub category and go there.October 7, 2011 8:44 am at 8:44 am #824385

This will not only stop images from loading but increase the speed that pages download.

livigent.com has a commercial solution — with it’s filter system, it detects human skin in images, and repaints it to a different color, e.g. black.October 7, 2011 1:54 pm at 1:54 pm #824390Dr. SeussMember
Is black skin less bad than white skin?October 7, 2011 2:04 pm at 2:04 pm #824391csr1Participant
Firefox has an add-on called, “image show-hide.” With one press of a button, it hides ALL the images on that page. If the button is pressed again, the images all reappear. It is very helpful when you suddenly encounter a page with bad pictures; you can quickly hit that button and save your neshama.November 4, 2011 12:25 am at 12:25 am #824394bekitzurParticipant
