Well that's it for me. I just disallowed my image folders in my robots.txt file.
Hopefully that will get G (and others) to drop my images from there public image serps.
I'll see how that affects my traffic and income, if it does.
I've already quit building "image" pages for the most part because I'm weary of seeing my images pop up elsewhere anyhow. It's taken me years to get to this point, but I'm there now.
