Adobe is gearing up to roll out a tool that will help you identify whether an image has been edited previously or not. The upcoming preview version of Photoshop will come with an updated Content Authenticity Initiative technology that is claimed to stanch the spread of edited images online, as per a report by Engadget. Adobe will use metadata tagging and cryptography for users to attribute to the images and verify whether they are authentic or not, says the report.
With this tech, it would be possible for Photoshop to add tags to the images created which will kind of put a pin on the origin of the images. The tags include information about who the original photographer of the image is and also the location and time of capturing the image. All these details “will be cryptographically signed to vouch for their authenticity”, adds the report. The inclusion of the tech is aimed at making the editing process more secure.
Adobe is also thinking about adding this tech to its social media network Behance. One obstacle in making the online space for content creators plagiarism free is that the success of this tool depends upon the number of platforms that embrace it. The more the number of online platforms, social media networks and organisations adopt it, the more are its chances of success. The preview version has been launched, but it is yet to be seen whether it becomes a hit with organisations going ahead or not.
