    According to Googles FAQ, do the following to keep your images from showing up in the Google image directory.

    If they are already there, you will have to wait until the next crawl for the fix to work.


    ----------
    If you need an image removed from Google's image index we require participation either by you or by the site's webmaster. Please add a robots.txt file to the root of the server. (If you can't put it in the server root, you can put it at directory level.)

    Example: If your site is www.yoursite.com/images/dogs.jpg and you want Google to exclude the dogs.jpg image found on your site, you need to create a page called www.yoursite.com/robots.txt and on this page you need to place the following text:

    User-agent: Googlebot-Image
    Disallow: /images/dogs.jpg
    To remove all the images on your site from our index, place the following robots.txt file in your server root:

    User-agent: Googlebot-Image
    Disallow: /

    I've thought about that before, but wasn't sure I saw any advantage. There's always the possibility that someone looking for an image will buy something. Am I missing something?

    Most people looking those images up on there are looking for them to just take them and use them.

    One of my businesses is website and graphic design, so my images are copywritten and not to be added to any image collection, so I don't appreciate them harvesting them, minus my copyright and usages rules.
