Identification of falsified or modified images is one of corma’s special research services. We conduct forensic image authentication and tamper detection on digital photos. Our experts use unique solutions to determine whether an image is an unaltered original, an original generated by a specific unit, or the result of manipulation with an editing software/app. If findings confirm the suspicion, don’t accept the image as evidence.
Today, picture editing is easier than ever. Effectively editing images with the help of an image editing software and altering its message is mere child’s play. There are a huge number of tools and intelligent cameras that can help to achieve convincing results with minimal effort.
Professional software like Adobe Photoshop even allows the accomplished user to create deceitful and hardly detectable manipulations – at least to the naked eye. It is also true that there are not many ways to determine an image’s authenticity in a foolproof and easy way. We see image forensics as an important part of our investigative work.
But digital image editing does leave traces, for instance through actions like copying, dragging, scaling, or rotating image contents. That’s where our team has particular expertise.
Our Image Forensics Services
Experienced corma experts can get to the bottom of these traces and thereby prove any manipulation. It is also possible for our experts to detect the camera with which a picture was taken. Every stage an image has gone through can be reconstructed. Manipulated images are often meant to reinforce a particular statement and deliver supposedly bulletproof evidence. As part of our Internet investigations, we use tools such as CameraForensics to identify relevant images and the camera used.
“With just one sample photo of a digital camera, CameraForensics can search the Internet for other photos taken with the same camera.”
To remove doubts and uncover fakes, corma offers the following services:
- DETERMINING AN IMAGE’S AUTHENTICITY
- DETERMINING THE SOURCE CAMERA
- DETECTING IMAGE MANIPULATIONS AND ALTERATIONS
In short, we provide forensic image authentication and tamper detection for digital photos.
Our experts use special solutions to determine whether an image is an unaltered original, an original generated by a specific unit, or the result of a manipulation with an editing software/app and therefore may not be accepted as evidence.
