Adobe tackles photo forgeries  
Friday, March 9, 2007 | by Rob Galbraith
Wired has published an interesting article on the use of Photoshop to improperly manipulate the content of photos, and the tools Adobe is developing to enable news organizations and others to detect the manipulation.
 
Here's an excerpt from the story:
 
A suite of photo-authentication tools under development by Adobe Systems could make it possible to match a digital photo to the camera that shot it, and to detect some improper manipulation of images, Wired News has learned.
 
Adobe plans to start rolling out the technology in a number of photo-authentication plug-ins for its Photoshop product beginning as early as 2008. The company is working with a leading digital forgery specialist at Dartmouth College, who met with the Associated Press last month.
 
The push follows a media scandal over a doctored war photograph published by Reuters last year. The news agency has since announced that it's working with both Adobe and Canon to come up with ways to prevent a recurrence of the incident.
