How To Block Images From Particular Websites In Google Chrome

by arupchou on August 5, 2011

Yesterday I opened a website and faced difficulty in reading the text as large images kept on scrolling by it. It was a great pain for me to go through the text as the images kept in flashing. But i learnt that Google Chrome offers ways as to how i can block individual sites flashing these images which i am sharing with you all.

Steps To Block Pictures

First of all you need to open the Chrome browser and click on the wrench icon. From there you need to go select “Options”


Once you click “Option” you will be taken to a page where there will be three options on the left hand side namely “Basics”, “Personal Stuff” and “Under the Hood.”. Click on “Under the Hood” option.

Under the Hood

Once you click “Under the Hood”, you are taken to a page where there are a couple of options namely “Content Settings” and “Clear Browsing Data” are at the top of the page. Select “Content Settings”

Content Settings

Under “Content Settings”, you will find Images below which you get to see “Manage exceptions”

Manage Exceptions

When you click onto Manage exceptions you get a box where you need to type the URL of the website from whose images you want to block and select “Block” from Behavior drop down menu.


Once done, you can reload your browser and go to the particular site and the images will not be displayed. Only the text will be displayed.

I really found this handy when i require browsing just the text and keep away flashy images. It saved a lot of time and energy as I did not have to cut the images again and again. Hope you found the post useful.

You can block any content from websites much easier with Adblock Plus: http://chrome-plugins.org/extensions/chrome-adblock-plus/

Does this actually stop the images from being downloaded, or does it just hide them locally?
