We are excited to inform you about the newly introduced features in Aspose.Imaging Cloud API. Now it supports website-based image source for reverse image search. The image deskewing feature also makes the API second to none. We are continuously working and improving to offer you the best solutions possible.
Reverse image search is useful for finding duplicate or similar images. It can also help to monitor obscene or graphic content. You can also counter copyrights violations or trademark counterfeit by searching digitally signed images with the reverse search. Moreover, image deskewing is another feature that adds value to Aspose.Imaging Cloud API. It is also relevant to scanned PDF documents where skewed images often exist. Such PDF documents are frequently converted to searchable PDF documents where the results can be improved by deskewing the images. Let us dissect these features below.
Reverse Image Search using Aspose.Imaging Cloud SDK for Python
Several SDKs are available to communicate with Aspose.Imaging Cloud API. The SDKs take care of all minor details so that you can proceed with your requirements hassle-free. The SDKs include .NET, Java, Python, PHP, Ruby, Android, and Node.js. Here we will be working with a Python example:
First of all, you would need a free sign up at Aspose.Cloud. Install Python 2.7 or later and then add the following PyPi package to your requirements.txt.
Now import the dependencies as under:
Now, you can use below Python code to call the APIs and test the feature:
The website-based image source for reverse image search is well elaborated in this example. It includes an additional step of resizing the image to demonstrate the efficiency of API. Image dimensions may differ but the API will produce reliable and accurate results. Following is the screenshot of the output:
As you can notice that the number of similar images, the URL and similarity percentage are shown by the parameters in API response.
Image Deskewing using Aspose.Imaging Cloud SDK for .NET
Images contain a lot of information and image processing has assumed a lot of importance these days. A very common use case is skewed images in scanned PDF documents or often in the images from mobile phone cameras. Aspose.Imaging Cloud API now includes the feature of deskewing the images. You can deskew the images in BMP, GIF, JPEG, JPEG2000, PSD, TIFF, WEBP, and PNG format. Let’s consider a .NET example for deskewing a TIFF image.
This example uploads a sample image to Cloud Storage, deskews it and uploads the updated image to Cloud Storage. Below are the screenshots of input and output TIFF images.
Input TIFF Image
Output TIFF Image (Deskewed)
Aspose.Imaging Cloud SDK for Ruby
Another important addition in SDKs lineup is that we have published Aspose.Imaging Cloud SDK for Ruby. It lets you integrate robust image processing features in your Ruby applications.
We encourage you to try these efficient features of the API and share your experiences with us. Let us know if you have any suggestions or queries. We look forward to hearing back from you via Free Support Forums.
