I want to block images from all Google search services, except Google Images and captchas.

I've tried both tools>options>content>exceptions on Firefox and options>content settings>images>manage exceptions on Google Chrome with no luck. They work for other sites but not google.com.

    Nowadays it's being done with uBlock Origin or similar. FF removed the feature.

To block images originating from a specific domain, right click on the image & select View Image Info in the Firefox context menu. In the Page Info dialog box that opens, check the Block images from {domain}. Older versions of Firefox had the Block images from {domain} directly in the context menu.

Firefox Page Info - Media

Images can also be shown without using an image tag or by declaring a background image in CSS. You can embed the image data directly into the document with data URIs. In such cases, it may not be possible to block those "images".

    +1. A method for times when right-clicking an image doesn't show View Image Info could be right-clicking on the background or on a text(but not a link) and choose View Page Info, then navigating to the Media tab. Be sure to check the address of your intended picture, because not all the pictures of a page are from the same origin. I don't know if it addresses the problem mentioned above about embedded images.
