Default How much do you need to change old photos on new e/ts/y

Hello

I have a successful new stealth et$y account and I would like to sell some of my best sellers from my old suspended account. As in, mix in some old items on this new account.

I only have so many photos I can use and I am wondering how much I need to change these old photos to not get spotted by a bot.

I have changed the color of the photos using filters, as well as cropped the photos and added the watermark.

So far, so good but is that enough changes? Any suggestions?

use batch purifier to remove any hidden data from the images

If you can’t take new ones or move the object to a new background that’s all you can do, outside of stripping data.

Welcome to the forums - all the best as you master stealth

Batchpurifier works great for cleaning photos as does EXIF gif software.

I wonder if anyone has used this site? Concerned about potential theft of photos though: https://www.verexif.com/en/

I forgot to say I do use batchpurifier as well.

Are there not bots that check if you are reusing photos? Or do the bots just check the exif data?

Can the bots tell it is the essentially the same photo if you have re sized/cropped it as well as added a watermark and filter. Or does that no longer count as the same photo at that point?

Thank you!

Cropping resizing and adding a watermark can easily beat bots in my opinion.

Manual review of your account could be an issue

Thank you!
As the poster above said, usually cropping and things beats the bots. But if you sell quickly, list too fast or too much early on and get a manual review you could be toast.

If you can remove the item and place it on a different background that is much, much better to do.
