Abstract

We propose a method that is designed to detect manipulations in images based on the phenomenology of color. Segmented regions of the image are converted to chromaticity coordinates and compared to the white point, D65. If an image had been manipulated, the chromaticity coordinates will have a shifted white point relative to D65, the accepted average white point. We classify the image forgery using a convolutional neural network using a histogram of relevant statistics that indicate the white point shift. We verify this using a real world data set to demonstrate its effectiveness.
