Post Google image search - to allow or not?

Google has recently introduced an image search capability. When I discovered this I disabled it for all of my images after I found most of them had already been indexed.

If you do not want google to make available the images from your web site on their image search service include the following in your robots.txt file

User-Agent: Googlebot-Image
Disallow: /

What do the other webmasters think of this, will you disable it to? Or do you see this as another promotional plus for your site?

It doesn't really cause any harm unless you have a website with copyright images. But you should disallow hotlinking or you might lose a lot of bandwith to leechers.
