One of the most common practices in image tampering involves cropping a patch from a source and pasting it onto a target. In this paper, we present a novel method for the detection of such tampering operations in JPEG images. The lossy JPEG compression introduces inherent blocking artifacts into the image and our method exploits such artifacts to serve as a(More)
Region duplication forgery, in which a part of a digital image is copied and then pasted to another portion of the same image in order to conceal an important object in the scene, is one of the common image forgery techniques. In this paper, we describe an efficient and robust algorithm for detecting and localizing this type of malicious tampering. We(More)
The increasing availability of large quantities of user contributed images with labels has provided opportunities to develop automatic tools to tag images to facilitate image search and retrieval. In this paper, we present a novel hybrid probabilistic model (HPM) which integrates low-level image features and high-level user provided tags to automatically(More)
In this paper, we present novel histogram adjustment methods for displaying high dynamic range image. We first present a global histogram adjustment based tone mapping operator, which well reproduces global contrast for high dynamic range images. We then segment images and carry out adaptive contrast adjustment using our global tone mapping operator in the(More)
This paper proposes to employ the visual saliency for moving object detection via direct analysis from videos. Object saliency is represented by an information saliency map (ISM), which is calculated from spatio-temporal volumes. Both spatial and temporal saliencies are calculated and a dynamic fusion method developed for combination. We use dimensionality(More)
In this paper, we present a new feature extraction method that simultaneously captures the global and local characteristics of an image by adaptively computing hierarchical geometric centroids of the image. We show that these hierarchical centroids have some very interesting properties such as illumination invariant and insensitive to scaling. We have(More)
Absh-act-In this letter, we use a new approach for studying the properties of median filtering. Specifically, using threshold decomposition, it is shown that median filtering operation minimizes a two-term cost function of the output state of the median filter. The first term of the cost function measures the smoothness between the median filter output and(More)
