Images hide metadata and information, are your sure your pictures are clean?


Browser upload: use the image upload form in the homepage. Select the file to upload and start the analysis. You will be immediatly redirected to your image analysis. The analysis results are private, the only way to reach it is know the URL.
Faithful usage: please don't overload the site with too much requests.
The service is provided for free to you, but someone have to pay for server hosting, so the site havn't got so much horse power. Hardware is not free (see support section).
If you plan to generate a bunch of requests, please write me before. Abusers will be banned to preserve the service availability. Images and analysis are stored for 7 days, after that you have to resubmit it, so link for an analysis expires after 7 days.
API upload:
A simple REST API is provided for automatic usage. You can develop your automatic submission tool on top of that.
To submit an image just send a HTTP POST request:
POST /api/submit

image: image file

Example submission:
$ curl -kis -F image=@my_file.jpg

Example response:
{"url": "http://", "success": true}

The response is a "200 OK" and it is composed by the following fields in JSON format:
success: [true or false] status of analysis, if it gots some errors it will be false
url: [string] if the analysis is success an url parameter with the analysis's report URL will be present
json: [true or false] if enabled the report data is returned in JSON format
