Image Forensics and Research Integrity

Design & Media ServicesEnsure Image Integrity

KGL’s Image Forensics solution takes the guesswork out of image integrity by evaluating images after image preflight. The process uses exacting image analysis techniques to detect image manipulation in supplied grayscale or color images.

Keeping It Real

Reports about suspect or obvious image manipulation are generated and sent immediately to the publisher. These reports are presented as PDF files with “before” and “after” images, including a magnified image of the suspect area. We also use red zones to identify the suspect area and insert descriptions to explain the items in question. Links to the high-resolution images are provided to the publisher for review purposes.
