How to tell if someone altered their image?

Recommended Posts

someone entered this image for a contest, rules are no photoshop. The image looks sharpened. Any way to crack this case?

To make sure it was edited and not just pasted into PSE5, check when the image was created and then when it was last modified. If the dates are different, then you got yourself a rule breaker. If the dates are the same, you still may have a rule breaker, but you don't have as much evidence to support the case.

But either way, I do think it was Photoshoped.

On Ash's screenshot it says creation software was Adobe Photoshop, so yes it was altered.

@jsonchiu: I think you may be exaggerating how much the guy cheated. Those things are probably caused by the 3D car model, lack of Antialiasing, and the fact that it was saved as a mid-quality JPEG. Though you may have something with the white border.

yes but he could have used photoshop just to resize the image. the original image is always 1200 pixels (around there).

I think you should ask the creator [of the screenshot] if he, by any chance, edited the image in Photoshop because it "look like it was sharpened a bit". If he says "yeah, but only to resize the image", then he's more likely innocent then not. If he denies, then show him the proof.
