Fact-Checking II: Fact-Checking Photos

People unknown to you often tweet, email or text you photos from “news events.” But do you know if they are legit? Was the photo from today or five years ago? Was the photo doctored? How can we see when and where a photo was first published? We’ll explore how with Google Image Search, TinEye and FotoForensics.

Google Image Search: Check where and when an image was first posted to the web

Tineye.com: Similar to Google Image Search but produces some different results

FotoForensics: Breakdown meta-data and detect layering on news photos
