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'.

scammer marcus owen (ahahaha)

Claimed to be in Webster SD
claimed to be a contractor in construction
claimed his first wife tried to kill him
claimed his only love died of cancer
Once he divulged his 'name' he left town and
Suddenly had a contract in England so no U S trace worked
as he was now supposedly from Ireland lived all over the world since birth
Then claimed he was a civil engineer who studied in England
claimed a mixed bag of past relatives/ethnic backgound
Claimed he would come visit me once his work was done
didn't send alternate photos or answer questions
Answered questions with questions to m

Finally spoke after he 'arrived in London' and he didn't have an irish accent... was unfamiliar and thick
'I wonder why you would think i am forging a mail to you, that is the dumbest thing i have ever heard since high school, its kinda of weird to me. '

his answer when I said he sounded like he copied and pasted a lot. I googled some especially sappy stuff, and sure enough right from a book...

His writing sounded like different people wrote it as his text, spelling and grammar changed. Took ages to answer emails so he could perfect his english

Beware of scammer... I gave this guy lots of info, but no money thank heaven. Sad we are so lonely that this type of scam works so often, sigh

I am sorry my post on Marcus Ownen was off topic. I was angry and could not find how to post it right away. There are no boundaries for these ignorant Vampires. They are experts at what they do and I am finding some comfort in knowing I gave no money.

I am so sorry that what seemed so good to be true for me also happened to all of you. A little differnece seems the men are lured by sex and females by the heartstrings...

HUGS and keep your hearts and money safe.
