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'.

@ OJAS
I found a page you'd like me to contribute to!

Some of the hardest aspect of recognising faces is that of not having the same angles to compare. Also, different distances from the camera.

OJAS said else where, that you should ask for 3 close ups (left and right side profile and front on. Hair behind the ears, with no other extras like glasses etc.) of the face that fill the shot.
If they have a VALID passport then they already have a front on shot.

In this example I had several photo's of each woman to compare. I used them all, but only used 2 of Alsu and 1 of LARISA to make my final decision.
The comment regarding the broader smile was obtained with looking at the other photos, not present here.
These 2 were the hardest I've had to do here! I took about half an hour.
Extract from: http://www.delphifa..43#146288

The forehead on LARISA is more pronounced in relationship to her nose. Also LARISA has a broader smile, but only slightly.

The photo shows a very close resemblance, but I think they are different! They are (from R to L Alsu LARISA Alsu).

@Steve,
Thanks mate. Since this thread is on recognizing images, I will try to use it also for recognizing persons in the images. It might make it easy for newbies.

HIS EMAIL TO ME........................
Is my greatest pleasure to meet such a wonderful and perfect lady like you; once again my names are, Felix Daniel Saffe, I am 54yrs, widower, I have been living alone for the past 6yrs since my wife died, we have a 23yrs old son by the name Wayne, who is studying law at a university in Texas; I live here in Miami Florida, am American citizen, my mother is from Argentina and my father from Australia.
I attended my university education in Queensland-Brisbane where I obtain my masters in business administration and accountant, and now I am an independent business/financial consultant with PhD degree in business admin/management.
After I obtained my highest degree in business administration and accountant I worked for a while and enter into business, I am into marketing and supply of JP 54 Jet Gas and Alluvial Products such as Diamond, Gold, Silver and Bids. I am a very simple person to be with, but one thing I love to tell you about my life is that I love to accommodate people and to help people in getting solution to their long difficulties…
Really… I have been searching for a responsible God fearing woman like you to have a serious relationship in order to re-marry and start a family, though I belong to a very good Christian home, I strongly believe that religion, distance, nationality, height, financial background, age differences is not gonna matter to me, all that matters to me is to meet the right person, that woman I have ever wanted, I believe in love and with love and care we can worked the work and talked the talk to make a better day for each other as God may want it.
My hobbies are singing,, swimming, cooking ,, and of course reading my bible is the best time ever for me I don’t joke about that ,,, I have all these while being listening to the lord for every step I take ,,, I am a man with feelings for others,, I don’t just do things,, I do thing by the wisdom of the lord, I love food “LOL” and am out going person love to discover new things,, love to know new things, people find it very easy to associate with me am so open to every one,, especially when it comes to a relationship.
I don’t hide anything I give all of my self to a level to make my partner get more than satisfaction..... there is a life you can choose to live, though choice is not an easy thing to make, while life is not an easy thing to choose, truth is never so easy to believe but I found out that Christ is the way the truth and the life so I decided to follow him and to love him for he first loved me,,,, as a willingness in my heart I decided to do God’s work, and to live for him..... am a praise and worship leader in the First Evangelical Mission here in Miami, am 5.6fit tall,, am well built , grey eyes with black hair, I don’t look at age or height in a relationship I look at the heart of my partner....

For a long time I have being praying for a partner,, for that woman, that princess,, who should be crowned as a queen in the royal palace of my heart, darling the reason why you are kept so long is for the lord to manifest his love over you and to fix his people to the right place,,, the bible says for the lord's thought over us are good and not of evil to give us an expected end...
Sweetest in heart I want you to know that there is a season to everything in life, especially our meeting, and it is the right time for you and I to live together and to fulfil the word of the lord as it was written,,, he who made them made them male and female to fill the earth and multiply in number, for this cause a man shall live his mother and father and stick to his wife and they two shall be one flesh, and he who find a wife finds good thing and obtained favour from GOD,,
I wish I know what else to say again,,, but I will like you and I to sit together while I look into your eyes,,, and tell you what you meant to me.....anyway in your next reply we shall know when we meet,, Because I don’t want time wasting kinder relationship,, I want us to be real from now on,,

Regarding 'marymorgan@live.com' Look here for more: http://www.datingsc..y-morgan/
Extract from above page: 'It occurs as Diamond sales. She was in my eyes too quickly, my cellphone number. I test that this is not correct.' translated from Dutch to English using Google translate.

Phone No extracted from the above page: 0060163004453.
The 006 might be using 'true 006'. Look here: http://www.truecorp..dd006.jsp

From this page: http://www.kropla.c..alcode.htm I found: Or internally form Kenya to Uganda. And Tanzania to Uganda.

Is the one the same as yours?
