Fake photo analysis tools

In this digital age, it is so easy to photoshop images and make it look so real. With the recent controversy surrounding the World Press photo of the year winner and how it was possibly digitally enhanced how does one check for fake pictures.

I found 2 useful sites highlighted by Extremetech website Fotoforensics and Fourmatch. These sites help you identify if a picture has been manipulated and the extent to which it has been done. While Fotoforensics provides an online analysis of the picture, Fourmatch is a photoshop plugin.
