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'.

There is now an add-on for Firefox to search for similar images on Google on right-click (similar to the TinEye plugin):

This may not be the scammers real photo, but it is one that she uses. I think the photo has been stolen off another profile. She initiates contacts (tagged) and complains about web camera jerks wanting her to do stuff and see her naked. It is one of the claimed reasons she only shares modest photos but she share ones such as shown. She will. agree with your comments about scammers. Laugh with and move pretty fast. She knows exactly which buttons to push and quickly focuses any doubts and queries your lack of trust. Gets a ‘trusted’ friend to email you and try to chat you up. The moment you refuse money, you are a cheat. She also claims she smashed her web cam because of all the men asking her to undress. Says she’s been beaten n put in hospital by a cheating partner. Claims age from 35 – 37, No kids and never married. Trust is the issue because all men are cheats. Soon it is the sick mother soon after she declares she wants to marry you. Address is real but turns out to be the post office building. Very good at diverting the topic. She claims to work at Walmart in Newport Arkansas and is poor. The boss will try to force her into sex for money but because of you she could resist him. Very clever, a very clever scammer. Searches don’t pick up things and she checks out at first. But she asks and asks for money. Email as heather_amber1@yahoo.com. Says her real names is heather Gibbs. Her photos aren't picked up on first few searches. Then hits of different peoples profiles come up with each photo she has sent. I thought i was smart but she outsmarted me.
