I've been playing a lot of Minecraft and I would simply like to know how I can find someone's base when they post a picture showing said base. It must work with Spigot.

The only way that it would be possible for you to find a base in Minecraft with only a picture is if the picture includes the "debug menu" open in it. The debug menu will look like the following picture (the coordinates for the player's current location are circled in red):

enter image description here

The debug menu can be opened buy pressing the F3 button on your keyboard. However, if the debug menu is not included in the screenshot it will not be possible to find the base by any known means.

If this menu is in the screenshot, all you have to do is open the debug menu, and move your character to the coordinates shown in the screenshot, then you will have found the base.

    Its likely that these people either recognized landmarks in your pictures, were a server mod, or had access to the server data. It is very much not possible to find a base with only an image and no other information.
