Image recognition programming

Earlier this week I made a project called imageFind which is currently on my GitHub and under the release tab there is a compile of it. It uses the AForge.NET Framework Imaging library to find a bitmap image in another bitmap image.

With this framework library, we can take a screenshot and use that screenshot as our template bitmap, then use our “find” bitmap to locate it on screen. This can open lots of new doors as far as hacking goes, but for this project it was to locate an X and Y coordinate to click on.

In particular the sample is to click on an iTunes icon on your desktop. But, this can also be used to solve captchas, create game bots for games like Diablo II or even bots for automated processes like using a website daily. It’s built in C# and would need your customization.
