Recognizing similar images

You guys have probably been wondering, why would I want to collect keywords for images?

As you may have noticed, you can search here if a photo that you have received has already been posted to this site. This photo search will work when you received exactly the same photo as someone else prior to you.

But the scammers are getting smarter. They take a photo of some model and slightly modify it. Each scammer may modify it in a different way. Usually they crop the image. Look at the two following ones:

Obviously the same image, but different size. The 'photo search' function will not recognize that these 2 photos are the same.

Now I added the ability to keep track of similar photos. The system will automatically recognize them based on the keywords. That is why it is not a good idea to add keywords like 'This is Natalia'. Instead the keywords should describe what you see on this picture- color of cloth, hair, etc.

I hope this will be helpful, in the long run. Only a small fraction of the images so far have received keywords. It's a lot of hard work.

Here are 2 other - 'similar' - pictures:

As you can see, they've been cropped to a different size and one has also been made 'brighter', for whatever reason. The keywords exposed them as being 'identical'.

Has anyone ran into these pics. I google image them but came up with nothing. She goes by Melissa Hughes and email is Is in Ghana and wants funds wired to her uncle Obed Sahme Dery Takoradi Ghana. She doing the how much she loves me and needs help with passport, visa, and airline ticket to be with the one and only love me. She is wanting money now but haven't and won't send any. She is good if scamming which I put in one of my emails was how she talked about the money but never mentioned about the pic I sent her then I told her a little fib on how I've been the victim of scammers and such. She replied to my email not understanding about what the women did to me but how I was reacting to her she could see they did something bad to me. So I let it go because shes not like any of the other scammers I;ve ran into. So if she has ran against someone others path or one knows she is scammer please let ne know.
