How do I block image searches on search engines?

How do I block image searches and images from search engines such as Google WITHOUT blocking the entire search engine?

 

We use onlinefamily.norton Safety Minder and have blocked multiple web categories including the following to keep pornography off our computer:

 

--pornography

--lingerie

 

...but pronographic images easily get through on search engines by simply typing "bikini" or otherwise.

 

WHY ISN'T "IMAGE SEARCH" AND "VIDEO SEARCH" OFFERED AS WEB CATEGORIES TO BLOCK?

 

HOW CAN I LOCK ACCESS OR BLOCK USERS FROM PERFORMING IMAGE SEARCHES OR HAVING IMAGES COME UP AS SEARCH OPTIONS WHEN SOMETHING LIKE "BIKINI" "GIRLS" AND THE LIKE ARE TYPED INTO SEARCH ENGINES?

 

And no, locking Googles safe search option to "Strict" filtering has not worked.

 

To clarify, I want access to PARTS of search engines (to get directions, find a company that sells something I need, or look up a definition). I just don't want images to come up when search key words have been inputted.

Hi sorenson,

 

Thanks for your suggestions.  If you have the Safe Search turned ON under Settings -> Search, the program forces the Safe Search on the search engines, like Google and you would see "Google SafeSearch is ON" on the search result page.  Google will decide which images are appropriate and filter out the inappropriate ones.  

 

We have the feature of filtering by words on our enhancement list.

 

Thanks,

Katie
