    As the title states I do not want people to be able to find these pictures anywhere online. I have seen people just scribble with paint in the background. Is this good enought?

    I've done resizes of the pictures, crop out about 20% of it out.

    get the pic you want, take a snapshot of windows or whatever OS you're using, then resize/crop that pic. I'm not sure if the paint scribbling thing actually works, as most reverse image searches compare exif data they don't analyze similarities in pixels or whatever.

    There's a way easier way, Download a screenshot program (I use gyazo, It's free too) Screen shot your picture wait for the program to open the screenshot of the picture and re-save your picture from the screenshot, It wont be able to be reversed through the image search because essentially it's a completely different photo (A photo of the photo). c: and Presto. Saves all the cropping ect that they suggested above because you can make the screenshots fit the exact size of your picture (You also don't lose any by re-sizing, Although it may take the quality of it down a really really tiny fraction, But it's almost unnoticeable.

    Hopr this helps man.

    I was recently reverse image searching some of the images on my website (images that I altered from "labelled for reuse with modification" images) and I noticed that the images that returned results often had unedited elements of the original image. For example, if your have a picture of a man's hand holding a fruit against a green background, you'll need to edit the green background, the fruit, and the hand to prevent it from appearing in the reverse image SERPs. Even then, you may need to change other elements of the photo such as "size, layout, and aspect ratio before the image appears s original.

    not sure if you already have your pictures, but you can always scrape pics from instagram, those aren't indexed on google, no reverse image search would be able to find them (unless somebody already downloaded it from ig and upped it onto a site which is indexed by google or other reverse image search engines)

    i can imagine that the degree of editing is pretty different from picture to picture which would be needed to block the pics from being recognized by google and even if there's a certain metric like resizing and cropping 20%, every pic is different, if you have a lot of pics and planning to edit them in bulk, you may end up having funny pics like bodies without heads etc. lol, that's why i said that maybe it's better, if you use pics which aren't indexed on google at all, less headaches, nicer pics, literally inexhaustible original content brought to your site by ig

    simply change the hex code with the help of a free software
    it can be done by adding few nulls to the binary of the picture content

    I think FB images are also not indexed by google as well, but I have to look into it more.

    I made a photoshop action to deal with this:
    1) Free Transform
    2) Tilt image 10 degrees left or right.

    I then batch process them.

    If you play around with it, you'll see there are lots of different things you can do to the images to make them non-searchable. Skew, distort, warp. Small changes you don't notice. Obviously you'll want to make macros for this, otherwise it takes too long.

    I used to only flip horizontal, but if your image has text in it, a mirror image is less than ideal.

    yea, i'm pretty sure they aren't indexed on google, but it's easier to scrape from instagram using hashtags and people upload a lot of garbage to fb, memes and shit, instagram is much cleaner, nicer imho, so you'll have better results

    There is a ton of garbage on FB, I have to scrape like 25,000 to 30,000 profiles at least to get a decent amount of images for a photo blog project.

    it's actually a simple, yet pretty good idea without losing quality

    Hi,
    I had same issue with the images I used in my dropshipping ecommerce, but then I found photonarnia. .com

    A part of that, they show you how to download any image from any bank images for free.

    You'll love it

    This topic will have been resolved 2 years ago and necrobumping is seriously frowned upon on this site particularly when it is done purely for self promotion and spamming purposes.

    I suggest you read the rules thoroughly if you want to last around here.
