How To Tell If The Image Is Fake Or Original? Use Image Error Level Analyzer

Many a times we come across images where we are stuck into thinking if it is original or photoshopped (fake). Image Error Level Analyzer or simply ELA, is a free web service which helps you in determining if the photo is real or not. So how does it work? Neal Krawetz (Ph.D) explains it nicely:
Error level analysis (ELA) works by intentionally resaving the image at a known error rate, such as 95%, and then computing the difference between the images. If there is virtually no change, then the cell has reached its local minima for error at that quality level.

Laptop Touchpads can be a blessing or a curse depending on whom you ask. I know many who refuse to use laptop touchpads because they find it annoying, be it accidental clicks, wrong clicks, or simply difficult to use. Touchpads are something laptop reviewers always jump at because it forms the important part of the whole functionality. One of the biggest annoyance users have to face are accidental clicks when they are typing. The problem can get out of hand particulary if you're pressed for space on your work desk. With me personally it has happened multiple times - once while composing an email, I accidentally closed the browser window.
