Check the Background
When looking at electrician pictures on their website, check the background for bend or distorted parts. When a part of the picture is edited, something in the background will appear bent too. A bent door frame or crooked breaker box is an indication that the electrician photo on the website has been doctored.
Pay Close Attention to the Reflections
One of the hardest things to do when editing pictures is manipulating shadow or reflection. Most users with limited knowledge of Photoshop usually forget to manipulate the shadow properly. If the shadow is not there, the picture is likely to be fake. By paying close attention to the reflections and shadow, you can identify fake pictures on websites.
Beware of Low-Quality Images
In addition, the quality of the image on the website can also help determine if the electrician image is real or fake. Often times, the doctored image will appear blurry around the edges. Photo editors usually reduce the quality of the image intentionally. However, the image quality will not be reduced uniformly. The edited section will have a lower quality compared to the rest of the images. Hence, when looking at electrician images on their website, you should on the lookout for varying image qualities on the same picture.
Search for Identical Patterns
Furthermore, most images have identical patterns. Thankfully, our brain is wired to look for these patters. If you look at the picture carefully, you can identify cloning errors or other things that make it look fake. Likewise, you can evaluate the natural tones and colors of the electrician picture.
Get the Image Metadata
Also, you can detect doctored electrician images by checking for the image metadata. The metadata will provide you with information about where and how the picture was taken. Such information can be found under the EXIF heading. Also, the image metadata will let you know if Photoshop was used to open or save the image. With this, you should be able to differentiate between a real and edited electrician picture.
Use Your Instinct
Lastly, always think twice before falling for any electrician picture you see on their website. A very easy way to identify doctored images is to use your instinct and common sense. With this, you can detect fake images and stay safe from dishonest service providers.
