Topic: Blocking search engines from galleries and images

Is there a way to stop search engines indexing my galleries and images? I don't want my high res images showing up in google images.

I've added meta robots noindex nofollow on the gallery html page, is this enough to stop my images being spidered?

Re: Blocking search engines from galleries and images

Yes, you can setup a robot.txt and sitemap.xml to tell the search engines how to crawl and index your pages.
