Report Offensive Images In Google Image Search Gone Again

Google ImagesIt seems like the method for reporting offensive images in Google Image search has been dropped out of the new interface that launched in late January.

Typically, if you spot an offensive image within your image search results, you would have been able to click on "report this image" or something like that within the image search results.

That functionality is no longer available in the new interface.

Now, it seems you have to go to an external form to report offensive images found in Google Images SafeSearch.

This is how it worked last year:

Report Offensive Images In Google

Now, that option is no longer there. I am surprised Google doesn't simply put a button within the preview screen, there is plenty of room next to the "image details" button:

google images

This was reported in the Google Web Search Help forums where Googler Kousha said:

Thanks for bringing this up. We're aware that the "Report Offensive Image" option isn't appearing where it used to; we're working on bringing it back. In terms of the help content, I'll look into updating it to make it as accurate as possible.

This is frustrating because that use to at least hide pictures from your search. It was always a pain that you had to do it one by one though. Wish you could just click on all the pictures that should be reported.

http://people.tribe.net should be blocked. There is something wrong with those people. And there is no simple way to report an image. I have spent twenty minutes so far trying to figure it out. I'll just stop using Google.
