Found this Chrome Extension via +Deb Pardee but her's was limited and I wanted to reach a broader audience (or at least try)
I'm not sure what the developer was trying to achieve but this little tool has some handy applications. First, if your stream is full of naughty little images (the kind Google+ doesn't approve of) and you want to read your stream while at work or around the little ones, this will reduce those images and make them kind of blurry.
This is also good if you don't want to be distracted by every meme or animated gif that pollutes your stream.
It works with images and animated gifs but has no affect on videos and also plays nice with another image extension I use – Photo Zoom+ http://goo.gl/lcYFA

Mute (or make it fuzzy) images in stream in Google Plus

eta – not that there are ever NSFW images in my stream. >.>
Yeah, I don't need it myself because if I find that stuff in my stream, I uncircle them. I can deal with occasional 'art' but I have no tolerance for 'p0rn" and I think that's who this is targeted to.
Thanks for sharing, ideal with the kids about.
Now I just need the option to disable images in the Android app as it is mostly 2g mobile internet here.
