    need some help with image problems.
    i am trying to upload items to a 3rd party website, providing image URL for each item.

    the site, obviously after human review, keeps telling me that my images are not taken by myself... and that they cannot accept images from distributors... yet there are plenty of other sellers using supposedly distributors images. how do they tell if the images are taken by myself?

    how do they do it? anybody has any ideas?

    Each picture has some sort of metadata which can be extracted, this data contains lot of interesting info such as focus depth , camera type and brand, date of the shot and other info, from this info they can tell wheter it's taken by you or not, especially if you enter some info which they find not identical with the extracted ones.
