Abstract : Images that have been altered and more specifically spliced together have invaded the digital domain due to the ease with which we are able to copy and paste them. To detect such forgeries the digital image processing community is proposing new automatic algorithms designed to help human operators reveal manipulated images. In this paper, we focus on a local detection system, which considers which tampered areas produce local statistical effects that do not impact neighboring areas or the image as a whole. We propose to study how the definition of local blocks, considering their size and overlap, impacts final pixel detection. We also propose new features which are an original way to consider the noise of an image as a colored signal. Indeed, in a non-forged image, there is a high correlation of noise between the three color channels R, G and B. We show that an optimal configuration can be defined and in this case the proposed approach outperforms several previously proposed methods using the same tested dataset, in uncompressed and JPEG modes. Note, in this paper we only focus on feature extraction without using machine learning.
