How to hide images on specific sites in Chrome

It’s difficult to read a large portion of text on a Web site that has images flashing and scrolling by. Luckily, Google Chrome offers a way to block individual sites from being able to load these images, keeping your reading environment distraction-free.

Here’s how:

Step 1: Open Google Chrome and click the wrench menu in the top right corner. Then go to Options.

Step 2: Click Under the Hood on the left side, and then the Content settings button.

Step 3: Under the Images area, click the Manage Exceptions button.

Step 4: Click inside the blue box to add a new site. You just need the URL, and then you will need to change the Behavior drop-down box to “Block.”

Step 5: Reload your browser and go to the site. The images will not load until you remove the block (a small X will appear next to the site when you put your mouse over it) and restart your browser again.

You can also take these instructions and block images on all sites except the ones you specify in the Allow list in the same area mentioned in Step 4.
