Software Shows How Much an Image Has Been Photoshopped
« on: December 01, 2011, 03:29:45 PM »
According to an article in PC Magazine, a pair of Dartmouth researchers have developed software that reveals the extent to which images have been altered via programs like Photoshop.   The article also contains a link to the research team's Dartmouth web site, which contains some compelling before and after images. ;D

Gives whole new meaning to "this looks shopped".

Wow, some really, er, "interesting" examples. I like how they moved Jolie's eye up and Clooney's ear, heh. Academic research is interesting, but I always want to see a usable app from stuff like this. Do they provide anything like that, or anyone want to make one from the research? :D

The Dartmouth researchers have a website and, apparently, a company, Fourandsix.  On their website, they say "At Fourandsix, our mission is to develop software that enables you to determine the authenticity of images and to divine the truth within photographic evidence. Our first product is still under development, so sign up below if you’d like to be notified when we have more to announce."

So much for all that cleavage and those nicely toned midriffs on Flicker.  ;)
