Content generator : Photos : automatically rename + Retrive same freepik

Hello, Sven,

Is it possible to automatically rename the title of the photos by the inserted keywords or by a relation with the article?

Is it possible for you to select photos related to our recovery theme / article ?

Example for me, marketing
Is it possible to retrieve photos by keywords on Freepik (by indicating his account identifiers) because this site is free or almost free or other photo sites but good photos ?
thank you for a great software

Checking potentially infected photos for stegonography

A friend of mine has an old family PC with a bunch of important photos on it. Unfortunately, from what he told me, it seems like they have fallen victim to a tech support scam some five years ago, during which the scammer had remote access to their machine. They haven’t used this PC ever since that incident, because they were afraid that the scammer might have put some sort of malware onto their system. Since they aren’t super tech-savvy, my friend asked if I could help him safely recover their photos.

My idea would be to connect his HDD to my laptop using a SATA-to-USB adapter, boot into a Linux live environment, mount the HDD there, and copy the photos to either an external HDD or to my NAS. I see one problem with this, however. I’m by no means a security professional, but form what I’ve learned, it’s rather easy to embed a malicious payload into an image file (or at least a file that looks like an image; "steganography", "stegosploit"). So, it seems entirely possible that someone with remote access could have either copied an infected image to their hard drive, or run some sort of malware that infected their own photos. I think it’s unlikely that a tech support scammer would do this sort of thing, but the last thing I want to do is recover their photos and at the same time infect their current devices with malware.

Is there a reliable way for me to check their image files for such embedded malicious payloads (ideally from a Linux system)? My best guess would be to scan these files using an AV program such as ClamAV – do you think that would be good enough? Other than that, all I found were research papers looking into methods for detecting steganography, which leads me to believe that this is still a rather difficult problem to solve…

Edit: I have played around with OpenCV a while ago, which lets you read an image file into a Numpy array. So, theoretically, I could write a Python script that reads each of their photos into a Numpy array and exports it as a completely new image file, for a more of a "sanitizing" approach, rather than a "scanning" one. Do you think this is a good idea (especially of done by someone who’s not a security expert)?

Is it possible that my personal photos in my smartphone may end up in the internet even if I never uploaded or sync it anywhere in the internet?

Sorry if its a dumb question. I am pretty sure that my smartphone (android miui11) is constantly sending various data to its servers anytime when the internet is on. So, does it send my personal photos to the servers? Or any data related to my personal photos? Can this be a threat? Like if someone in the servers could see and upload my photos somewhere else in the internet?

Is it possible that the photos I click with the smartphone camera gets uploaded secretly? [closed]

When I take a photo with my smartphone camera is this information sent to the servers provided my internet connectivity is on? I came across some articles about spying on personal data by mobile company servers. So I am a bit worried and curious. I have cloud sync turned off. Is it possible that the photos I click are sent to the servers and the people working there can see my photos and can do anything they want? I am using a redmi phone.

Did I fall for an Amazon scam? (Amazon Photos Credit)

So just 30 minutes ago, I was looking through some emails that ended up in my scam, and as usual there are amazon emails with recommendations based on past purchases and stuff like that. Then there is these new email asking that if I were to upload a photo to Amazon Photos I may be eligible for $ 10 in amazon credit. So in a moment of weakness I uploaded a photo and so on. Then I realized that this may have been a scam. I look through the email and I only find the link Amazon.com. This potentially scam email came from store-news@amazon.com. According to amazon, links ending with “@amazon.com” are real, however some people on Facebook claim it to be a scam. After uploading a photo I get an email that did not end up In my spam folder from no-reply@amazon.com. I got on a live chat and the first person I spoke to said that it was a scam, and that amazon does not offer such credit. He put me on with someone in the appropriate department and she said that it was not a scam. Can anyone confirm if this is indeed a scam. I have setup two-factor authentication and changed my password and got rid of unnecessary information on my account, but I am kinda freaking out. Any clear information would be great.

What are the advantages or disadvatages of using stock photos or images, instead of using description?


What are the advantages and/or disadvatages of using stock photos or images, over using description?

This is a valid and helpful question, especially for firSt-time DMs. There are published sources which can be used to answer this.

First-time DM says: “I don’t think I’m particularly good at detailed poetic descriptions and I’m worried my imagination could be a bit on the slow side. I was thinking I could use something like a quick and dirty PowerPoint presentation showing some concept art / stock photos of various locations and NPC. Not only for the players but also for me to figure out what to describe if I get stuck.

Special thanks to Paprik.

When answering, please use concrete examples, share your expertise and refer to published materials where possible.

I don’t think I’m particularly good at detailed poetic descriptions and I’m worried my imagination could be a bit on the slow side.

Is this a good or bad idea?

Image Gallery photos aren’t cropping, even though they’re set to crop

Can someone help???

I know I’m uploading relatively high-res photos, and yet they’re still not filling the frames of the image gallery I’m creating in the post.

I’ve set the switch to “Crop” in the gallery setting, and still when I preview on the front end, they’re not filling the frames.

Is there a code or site-wide solution to this? I’m managing so many posts and it’s such a hassle to have to go into “image editor” and tweak individual photos when possible.

Thanks.
