Software will detect image manipulation

By Owen Weldon     May 31, 2012 in Technology
Kevin Connor, a former Adobe employee, is working alongside Dr. Hany Farid, a forensics expert, on developing a startup that will provide tools to help spot altered images.
Kevin Conner worked for Adobe for about 16 years. Connor worked in product management for the company. Connor said that customers use to always ask if there was anyway to tell if a photo had been photoshopped or not.
According to Poynter, Connor left Adobe last year and has teamed up with Farid, and started a company called Fourandsix.
The first detection software will be released later on this year. As of now the company's detection product is in beta and they plan on testing it out very soon.
According to Petapixel, the company will be releasing a full suite of software tools. The tools will aid photo editors and law enforcement, as well as other parties that are interested, in detecting image manipulation.
Farid actually analyzed a photo of Kim Jung-II's funeral and said that he found evidence of cloning. When it comes to image manipulation, Farid knows what he is doing.
A lot of Farid's techniques will now be integrated into some of the tools that will be found in Fourandsix's soon to be released suite.
