Following multiple artificial scandals manufactured online with photoshop, and fake currency printing, Adobe corporation has created a tool that can detect photoshopped images.
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and Women Rep Esther Passaris have been the latest victims of fake news using photo-shopped images.
Photoshop, a product of Adobe has been abused by those who manipulate images to create fake news. Adobe is also working on a tool that will reverse the changes when an image has been manipulated.
However, Adobe has been doing these for long, since Photoshop already comes with built-in image recognition tools that prevent scans or photos of certain bank notes from being opened at all, although it’s far from foolproof.
The new tool also detects when a face has been warped and manipulated using Photoshop’s Face Aware Liquify tool.
