They are using the algorithm to detect the duplication. These algorithms can detect most duplication in both high and low quality compressed video which relatively few false positives [4].

By using this way, people cannot stealing what could be copyright and can avoid them from manipulated the photo. The most popular software that are use for editing is Adobe Photoshop. Adobe has created a photo authentication tool to the software.

According to the Math (2010), Prof. Hany Farid has lately drawn attention of researcher worldwide by reporting digital image forgery problem. He developed the techniques how to detect digital image forgery. They are various ways how to manipulated the image like affine transforms such as translation, scaling rotation and shearing. Compensation operation like color, brightness, contrast, adjustment, blurring, enhancements and suppression operation such as filtering, compression and noise addition. [3]. The issue
