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.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
