You may be surprised at how little it takes to deter the paparazzi from stalking you.
The mere knowledge that publishers have easy access to your up-to-date photos will steer the paparazzi away. That isn't to suggest that publishing a single posed shot will end your problems. But don't think you will have to be posting 24/7 either. Posting your photos to papbuster.com accomplishes three main objectives:
i) It makes their photos worthless - especially unique/high value shots.
ii) It makes your intent (to defeat the paps) clear to everyone - so you can avoid accusations of narcissism.
iii) It has the potential of helping good charitable causes.
What kind of photos should I upload to papbuster.com?
You will want to upload photos that are better than the paps are trying to sell. That shouldn't be hard. They should be candid photos or video. They should have no reference to papbuster.com (save those for the paps). And they should be uploaded promptly after you've been targeted by a pap. These steps will devalue their photos the most. In the end, it is up to you how many and how often you publish. There is no minimum or maximum you can publish.
How many photos are we talking about?
It really depends. A single good photo might be enough, or it might take several different shots. Obviously publishers don't want to all use the same photo. That said, having even a single good shot from you dramatically increases publishers negotiating power with paps. Paps want something that is unique, so the payoff will be great. You can deny them that. You can make their photos worthless at will. You can take control.
I realize that you have a lot of additional questions. They are all answered here.
