The Sightengine Image Moderation Service is designed to automatically and easily detect adult content within user-submitted photos.

The service is available through an API and works in realtime, which means that an image gets moderated as it is uploaded. There are no waiting times and no delays. The API works for any type of image. Whether your photos are small or huge, with colors or black-and-white. It even works on complex scenes, with multiple actions or people.
