Use algorithms to keep photos from appearing.

With today's algorithms computers can perform photo matching based on content with some success. If this is possible, the next version of Mozilla's Safari Explorer should contain a feature in which I can right click on a photo and mark it as "never show." It that photo appears on any website, in any form it will be blocked from showing, even if it has been resized or cropped.

       What photos don't you want to ever see?   

       Is there something we should know about you?

       Do you really want me to start posting links to photos I'd like to block?
DIYMatt, Apr 04 2012
  

       Of course we do.

       There are LOTS of annoying, obnoxious photo ads that I'd like to block. Great idea.

       I use Opera's 'cached images only' setting, which means I only download images I explicitly consent to. Same with Flash. The savings on bandwidth and sanity are huge. Never looked back.
