Washington : Scientists have developed a new software to detect forged photos and have used it to debunk claims that the 1969 Apollo 11 lunar landing photo is fake, reports PTI.

The new method by Dartmouth College and University of California, Berkeley researchers uses a geometric algorithm to locate inconsistent shadows that are not obvious to the naked eye.
The technique analyses a variety of shadows in an image to determine if they are physically consistent with a single illuminating light source.
This allows a forensic analyst to determine if a photo is physically plausible or the result of image fakery.
