Options All -Indexes

That's it. Name it .htaccess and stick it into your Images folder. That will give it a 403 error which means that the user can't access it. It will allow them to access a specific file though.

Not Viewable:

Couple things: 

If you are wanting images to stay indexed (meaning every file is shown at example.com/image), then you don't need a .htaccess, or at least you don't need to remove indexes. I have a server and in my images .htaccess I have
Options -Indexes

and I don't have a problem. Images load, but a 403 is given when I enter the image directory and don't specify an image.

Maybe it is your server configuration. Talk to your hosting provider about it if none of the solutions work.
