I thought this might interest those of you who buy online regularly.

It may look authentic, but is it?

Registration is free. Sorry, I had forgotten that I am "permanently" signed in.

They are talking about image editing in the context of scientific articles. The jist of it is that there is a gent called Dr. Hani Farid who is developing a set of tools to detect image manipulation in digital images.

I would cut and paste, but that might be a copyright problem. Sign up for free, the NY Times often has interesting articles anyways.

That's a coincidence, africanuck, as I emailed that article to a photographer acquaintance with whom I often talk about the ethics of doctoring photos, etc. The link is this one, I believe: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/01/24/scien ... ?th&emc=th .

Thanks for posting the link, Gemma! Very interesting...wouldn't it be great if one could just download an eBay or other image, press a few buttons, and find out if the image was true or doctored?
