Hmmmm. Google launched this thing where you can use a picture to search the internet rather then typing something. I tried it with hiroshi's picture and got instant result. Nice technology but it ruins this game lol.
Great! well' there goes all our games that require picture identity then right? :frown: how new is this? and do a lot of people know about this? I didn't.
Pretty new i suppose. I'm gonna do some tests by cropping the image and changing the hue to see if google still detects it.
Ok the tests didn't work out so well. I first cropped the image but that did not fool google. Even when i cropped it so it just showed her ass(Hiroshi's picture) google still detected it. Then i changed the hue so she looked like a smurf. That didn't fool google either. Even blurring the picture did not work. A powerful tool indeed.
search by image
Geez, I never bothered to click on that camera icon before to see what it did. Thanks…
i tried it but I cant find where this tool is so, its no use for me - fortunately?
What browser are you using? Works no problem with Firefox.
I finally managed to prevent Google from finding other sources of the images I posted by flipping it horizontally, but there is always a chance it could have been flipped by other users.
Just change the size a tiny bit, I guess the main thing it searches by is 'Match Size and Ratio' then after that maybe something like 'Match Colour Palette'
Guys, what's the next plan for a game? this one is pretty much done now. Just when i finally figure out at least how to post links to pics and get into game too! :frown:
Do what the guy did in the Guess the Game, put a watermark on it or something.
I might have a solution for all these types of games if I or someone else can find a suitable online watermark generator. Or some dirt simple tool anyone can use. Text logos won’t do. Color pattern overlays make recognition near impossible for Google.
The more complex, the harder it is to correct the image as well.
^ I can confirm that this technique worls
