When it comes to quality versus quantity, you’ll often hear people say, “It’s the quality that counts, not the quantity”. While that’s true in many situations, there are also cases where you want both quality and quantity. You may have thousands of images on your website and you want them all to look great. This is especially important if your website allows users to upload their own content, for example, to sell their own products or services. You don't want their poor quality images to reflect badly on your brand.
The value of categorizing all the images in your library cannot be underestimated. Besides the obvious advantage of making your image library searchable and displaying relevant content to your users based on their interests, you can also learn more about your users according to the content they upload, and find out what people care about and look for. However, when dealing with a large volume of images, manually categorizing the images would take up too much time and resources.
Photos today can be easily edited by means of resizing, cropping, adjusting the contrast, or changing an image’s format. As a result, new images are created that are similar to the original ones. Websites, web applications and mobile apps that allow user generated content uploads can benefit from identifying similar images.
