    Google gives an option to search for duplicate images on the net with function "Search for similar images"

    Is tere a way to make my images not or less recognizable by this function?

    Thank you for the answers!

    Yes. Post it back to front. Jk:)

    Remove the meta data. You can do it through Photoshop. Then do some changes to make the image look different. Then pray for luck, and don't use Getty images ever... That job is only for real professionals who know how to fight back effectively. :)

    The easiest is to flip the images horizontally. The orientation doesn't matter with most pics (unless they have writing on them). Just make sure, that you flip the original picture and not an already flipped copy. :) More and more people get aware of this, so they do it too.
    You can also try things like cropping or other adjustments, but you need to test how much cropping or other modification is needed to make the images not recognizable anymore. There are batch image editors to make your life easier.
