After a number of photo-doctoring scandals involving Photoshop, Wired has a story on what Adobe is doing to try to repair their image (pun intended): they're creating tools to reveal when a photo's been altered.

The push follows a media scandal over a doctored war photograph published by Reuters last year. The news agency has since announced that it's working with both Adobe and Canon to come up with ways to prevent a recurrence of the incident.

"Fundamentally, our values as a company requires us to build tools to detect tampering, not just create tampering," said Dave Story, vice president of product engineering at Adobe.
