As my nature of profession, I imposed to work for a 'sexy' like web site. I would like to know is there any tool available for Internet Explorer and Mozilla, which partially shows the images. I could not use 'Load Images automatically' option because I want to show it, but I want to blur/reduce contrast of the images. Anybody know of any plug-ins available for browsers esp. IE and Mozilla.

Building upon AmpedWeb's answer, you can find (or create) the userContent.css for Mozilla-based browsers (e.g. ~/.mozilla/seamonkey/somerandomstring/chrome/userContent.css), put the following in there, and restart your browser:

@-moz-document domain( {
    img { opacity: 0.4 !important; }

    /* or, if you know of a CSS class name that marks the images */
    .classnamehere { opacity: ... }

It will make your images 60% transparent on that domain.

Note that this only works for <img> tags; if the images are embedded in any other way, they will appear normal.

Wow I need this how can i do it. Please explain :) Where should I put the CSS file in Windows. Can I apply it only for a single website ? – Rauf Aug 4 '11 at 7:34
On Windows, it is something like C:/Documents and Settings/user/Application Data/Mozilla/SeaMonkey/Profiles/somerandomstring. Search for userContent-example.css to find the correct directory. – zilch Aug 4 '11 at 7:37
:( I could NOT find the folder specified. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate – Rauf Aug 4 '11 at 7:45
Type this into your file manager's address bar: %AppData% – zilch Aug 4 '11 at 8:05

I tried to find you something but couldn't.

The only thing I can think of would be to create a stylesheet that sets the alpha of images to be really high.

I have no idea how you could auto-load that stylesheet on all of your webpages, but I know it can be done.
