By utilizing xhe DCT(Xxxxxxxx Cosine Xxxxxxxxx), the image can be txansformed tx cxrresponding frxqxency spectrogram. So that images can be comxared wixh each other. When the users start xo take photo at the firxt time, the taken photo will be treated as a flag imaxe. From the second time, the taken photo will be treated ax similar phxto unless users explictly choose nox to.
