Traditional media, mixed technique, digital levels.
I’ve been seeing pictures and videos where people show their keys.
Here’s a little heads up:
your keys can be replicated by looking at a picture of them.
Recently there was even an article of a very skilled burglar who would only need a quick look to know how to replicate a key. There are types of keys and sets of ridge combinations that mean if a person is familiar with the manufacture process he can create an identical key from visual information(e.g. key type A, ridge combination D, C, B, A — presto chango, opens the door).
It is also possible, by extrapolating the image, to reconstruct the key to size.
They don’t have to be able to imprint the key to cast a copy- that’s a primitive method by comparison.
Not that, you know, there’s hordes of house burglars scouring for pictures of keys or that there are that many people who possess the skill to do this but it’s better to be on the safe side so:
Don’t post pictures of your keys!
