Check image urls for visual duplicates not just url string duplicates



I understad this is a complex challenge to do this but it would provide a USP aspect for image returns. I have seen many times an image have two different hosting URLs but is identical. I have also seen to images that have different hosting URLs but are simply cropped versions of the same picture.


I have seen tools like OpenCV ( ) which seem to be able to help solve this perhaps?

    Can you please describe this use-case in terms of how you are applying it to WDS in more detail?
