Scaled Recognition API - Developers

Scaled Recognition uses image recognition technology to convert textual data in image files to UTF-8 (documents, files, receipts), and also allows you to recognize the positioning of faces in a picture or, using Facebook, find the best profile photo of a person using a specified social graph. The service is designed to provide usable information about visual objects for SaaS and mobile developers. The REST API uses GET (best profile picture) and POST (facial detection) methods to return information in JSON. Documentation hosted on Mashape also includes examples of response models for: Best Profile Photo Results, Face Detection Model, Match, Result, and Text Recognition Response.
