Not Even a Convincing Photoshop Job

An obviously faked photo of Kim Jong Il. The first thing you think is that the Norks are just incompetent at digital imaging, but then maybe the botch job is on purpose?? Is someone trying to tell us that maybe he really is an ex-Kim, or very close to it?

Not so fast, says Dartmouth digital forensics expert Hany Farid:

"Quantitatively, I ran a number of forensics tools, and there's no cloning, there's no color-filtering artifacts, the lighting is completely consistent, you can explain the shadows," Farid says. "The image was edited, as all images are, because they all get cropped and contrast-enhanced, but other than that, there was just no signs of tampering anywhere."
