    Would it be enough to clean the metadata and change the md5 hash of the picture in order to post it over and over again?
    Or would ig noticed that anyway?

    Thanks!

    My suggestion would be make few pictures by yourself, Otherwise you can get in trouble first penalty is ~£300 for one picture used on your website

    This is how you make money on IG. Take a picture yourself, hope it goes viral and then sue reposters. Catch 10 a month a you got a comfortable 3k. Profit.

    It will be my pic though, basically i want to spam ig with it which its against their ToS (you cant post the same picture over and over again)

    i guess it would require trial and error, you can modify/bulk edit pictures quite a few different ways, you just need to find the point where ig doesn't consider those the same pic anymore
    you can add practically invisible watermarks, a small dot, play with hue/saturation/lights, flip horizontally, crop etc., changing just the MD5 may not cut it

    Editing pics basically changes your md5 value and I believe IG reads only md5 value to recognize a pic!! Or is there more to it?

    true that, but you can change the MD5 without editing, that's what i was trying to getting at
    honestly i would be surprised, if ig wouldn't have some kind of image recognition system in place which uses more than just the MD5 checksum to identify a pic, it's too easy to game

    maybe who does mass image uploading nowadays can shed some more light onto this, i'm out of the loop since a while
