There are 2 search engines in this version where you can turn off safe search. You can see that the rest of them have safe search "Always on" because they require people to login to turn it off.

You need to get version 3.50 to get adult results from the built-in picture search:

Safe search is turned off by default for all search engines that support it. Currently it's Google and DuckDuckGo.

Ok I have now downloaded and installed version 3.50, STILL SafeSearch restricted.
My browsers have SafeSearch switched off.
I ran this as a REG
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SearchSettings]
"SafeSearchMode"=dword:00000000
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Still does NOT help.

You do not get unsafe search results in Google and DuckDuckGo?

No problem in Google or DuckDuckGo
Images show properly in both

Well, as I said earlier, Extreme Picture Finder simply cannot extract unsafe images from other search engines right now.
