Is it real or is it Photoshop?

The New York Public Library recently posted a great article.  Many times we see an image through e-mail or various forms of social media that amazes and astounds us.  How can you tell if the image is accurate or has been modified using some form of software?  Two great Websites are Tineye and Google Reverse Image Search.

These are great resources to use whether checking to see if that photo your friend posted on Facebook is real or if your student altered an image to better support the position they took in their paper.

Here is a link to the original article – Factcheck Your Friends: Misinformation on Social Media.
