Subject: [Leica] Digital Photography Authentication

A short, interesting article from Businessweek about a forensic
imaging specialist who developed a way to tell whether a digital
photograph is authentic. Also has been applied to traditional
photographs, including authentication of a controversial shot of Lee
Harvey Oswald. This is a straightforward article in lay language.

If you're interested in learning more, do a search for the fellow,
Hany Farid. Lots of info about him and the technical work he has done,
as well as papers he has published.
