Addictive tool to investigate CHEATS!!


With a little help from an online tool: ( ), I saw a duplicate ID from the same Camera profile.

So this member Vivid Vivian and Sandra Shines is the same person. With the same CameraProfileDigest 93BF503F75F0309FD21D1352DF4CEF65

She entered in Challenge Blurry image, but had doubtfully high 5 star votes. That started me to investigate

Here's how to start busting:
1. Go to the suspected image and view in full size view.

2. Copy the URL of image and paste it on -> Click start.

3. Image icon will be displayed on left hand side; ON the right side of info see "Hidden Data" and click -->   metapicz

4. New page will show with EXIF (left) and XMP(right) profile of the image. See if there is serial number or Camera Profile Digest .

5. Now Check another suspected image, hint: start with same camera model (here its both Nikon D70) or check images that have unreasonably high 5 star votes.

6. Open another tab of and paste the second image.

7. Compare the Serial number or the Camera Profile Digest.

If you expose some duplicate ID please report to DPR. Or let us just expose them to fellow members.

Have fun!
