ABSTRACT With the rapid progress of the image processing software, the image forgery can leave no visual clues on the tampered regions and make us unable to authenticate the image. In general, the image forgery technologies often utilizes the scaling, rotation or skewing operations to tamper some regions in the image, in which the resampling and interpolation processes are often demanded. By observing the detectable periodic distribution properties generated from the resampling and interpolation processes, we propose a novel method based on the intrinsic properties of resampling scheme to detect the tampered regions. The proposed method applies the pre-calculated resampling weighting table to detect the periodic properties of prediction error distribution. The experimental results show that the proposed method outperforms the conventional methods in terms of efficiency and accuracy.
