Google may use a different system but a large number of such services (tineye included) use perceptual hashes where the overall hash is close enough to be a match, rather than exact. A whitepaper showed up a few years back which detailed the process. I haven't been able to find a link to it, but the basic system relies on a action chain to generate the ...
Try switching the file format you're saving in. Reverse image searches start by using some data that gets logged intrinsically into the image, which is probably why your obfuscation techniques haven't been working. JPEGs are particularly bad about this, PNGs not so much. With especially popular images, this might not work, however. Ideally, find a way to ...
You can do something like this: It is not 100% bulletproof, but it should throw off most image identification engines. What I did was add black and white noise to the image as well as some displacement. Messing with the colors eg. only displacing one or two color channels would be even more effective, but complex to implement.
Here's my take using the Bevel and Extrude tool (Effect > 3D > Bevel and Extrude) Sorry for the French text but everything is in the same place so you should be able to figure it out. The best part to this method is that everything stays editable and there aren't too many extra steps. You want your letter to still look flat so put all the rotation ...
Here is my shot I have used Drop Shadow, Inner Shadow, Bevel and Emboss, Gradient Overlay and Satin Screenshots of used effects Drop Shadow : [ Blend_Mode:multiply,100%,#000000 ] [ Angle:120, Global_Light:No ] [ 4px:0%:1px ] [ Contour:Defaults/CoveDeep ] [Noise: 0% ] Inner Shadow : [ ...
Well, you're on the right track. The key is to use layer styles. Here's my shot: Settings: Add Bevel & Emboss. Choose "Chisel Hard" under technique, play around with the settings and use the "Cove - Deep" preset under Contour. Add a dark grey to bright white linear Gradient Overlay. Angle it and limit it so that it begins with the white in ...
I found a quickish method! You had almost all of the workflow, and the 'cutout' part that you had, is what I was missing when trying at first. Starting with this image, because I couldn't find the one you're using: The longest part for me was masking out the background. You may also need to add a Black & White adjustment layer after step 2 if you're ...
It's called posterization (as it was a technique to allow for making posters easier via screen printing, block printing, or lithography). The most common ways to achieve it: use the 'posterize' filter in your raster image editor of choice (photoshop, pixelmator, GIMP, etc.) use a vector tracing tool (as previously mentioned)
The first image looks like a direct Live Trace in Illustrator. In order to get better results you can boost the contrast of the image before live tracing it and after that as well. This is how the results look like: It's a good idea to clean some important curves and lines, so that they don't look so random.
You might be able to achieve this using filters, but I would actually consider redrawing the photo entirely using Illustrator a similar vector tool. You can do this using the Pen Tool. To make things easier, start by pasting the photo you want to convert, and maybe turning it into B&W and increasing the contrast. That will give you a nice base to work ...
I'm not entirely sure, but it looks like the effect was based on the ellipses mapped onto the surface of an Illustrator 3D Revolve effect. The result was probably expanded, edited and given a clipping mask.
Easiest way to do this is by using overlay layer with texture. Heres some textures you could use http://blog.spoongraphics.co.uk/freebies/free-pack-of-12-distressed-halftone-pattern-textures Just put it on the top of your current picture layer and find suitable blending mode and opacity and you'l be all good
