Can you make a key from a picture?

It’s completely possible to make a key from a picture. One only needs the ability to cut keys by code. That means not duplicating a key that’s physically present but making initial cuts to specific depths. In fact, here at lock alchemy we frequently request customers to send pictures of keys. We can usually identify the type of key and the cuts from a good picture. This can save the customer time while we drive out from University Heights OH or South Euclid to their location in the greater Cleveland area. This is also the reason why we obscure key cuts on social media or black them out.  Making a key from a picture is definitely a real thing. Think twice before you post a picture of your keys on social media.
