Real or Photoshop?

Sometimes it’s tough to tell if a photo is real or created by a talented creative using Photoshop.  Well, here’s a site that claims to be able to tell the difference:  Image Error Level Analyser

How does it work?  Every time you save a jpeg, there is some quality loss.  The analyzer looks for those decreases in jpeg quality, pin-pointing the areas that are most likely to have been edited.

This picture was scanned then photoshopped to even out areas of light and dark.
