Looks like a bad news for me. According to Inside AdSense about Ad and Image Placement Policy, is AdSense Beautifier no longer compliant with Adsense Terms of Service? Let’s take a look about this.

We ask that publishers not line up images and ads in a way that suggests a relationship between the images and the ads. If your visitors believe that the images and the ads are directly associated, or that the advertiser is offering the exact item found in the neighboring image, they may click the ad expecting to find something that isn’t actually being offered. That’s not a good experience for users or advertisers.

Publishers should also be careful to avoid similar implementations that people could find misleading. For instance, if your site contains a directory of Flash games, you should not format the ads to mimic the game descriptions.

AdSense beautifier comes with general images. That’s the reason why I always pending to show images relate to post’s keywords ;) I always use general images to avoid mislead or confuse my visitors.

What if I place a space or a line between my images and my ads? Would that work?

No. If the ads and the images appear to be associated, inserting a small space or a line between the images and ads will not make the implementation compliant.

AdSense beautifier places a space or a line between images and ads and comes with general images that does not appear to be associated with ads.

Does this mean I can’t place ads on pages with images?

You can definitely place Google ads on pages containing images — just make sure that the ads and images are not arranged in a way that could easily mislead or confuse your visitors. For example, if you run a stock photography site with a catalog of thumbnail images, don’t line the ads up with the thumbnails in a way that could be misleading. Consider using a full border around your ads or changing your ad colors, for example.

As It says, you can use AdSense Beautifier — just make sure that the ads and images are not arranged in a way that could easily mislead or confuse your visitors. It’s depends on your images. You should use general images that does not appear to be associated with ads.

But You should always contact Google AdSense team to make sure your ads always compliants with Adsense Terms of Service. You should use AdSense Beautifier with your own risk as always I said :)
:D Have a great day and good luck!
