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'.

Some parts of a picture can easily be photoshooped, some are harder. In order to help searching some descriptions are useful. For example http://www.delphifa..html#28708 has a pock mark on the bridge of her nose. Look for that in more of her pictures in the following pages, but not just that alone. When you reach http://www.delphifa..?p=1#49950 a heart pendant stands out. This part of a picture, not of the girl, but is very useful to note. Continuing with more of her photos, http://www.delphifa..?p=3#57509 shows both pock mark and pendant clearly! Following all her links under all her pictures, there was a picture of her someone posted with a lizard tattoo on her right abdomen, just above thigh joint, and it is one of those difficult to photoshop areas. Although I am not interested in pursuing her till she shows her lizard tattoo, anyone interested is welcome to follow the links under all her pictures.
