JPEGsnoop is a free Windows application that examines and decodes the inner details of JPEG and MotionJPEG AVI files. It can also be used to analyze the source of an image to test its authenticity.
JPEGsnoop is a very interesting portable app that can be used for extracting very detailed information from JPG, THM, AVI, DNG, CRW, CR2, NEF, ORF, PEF, MOV and PDF files. This information can be used to check if an image has been altered, see the image compression used by cameras and determine the quality settings used by photoshop in an image. Most of the information given by JPEGsnoop is very technical which is great if you know what all that info means. Extra features include exporting pictures from AVI files, saving images inside PDF files and identify the hacks necessary in order to improve your scanner/cellphone camera quality.
In conclusion i feel that JPEGsnoop is probably going to be a lot more useful to users that can make sense of all the technical info given however checking an image to see if it's been altered it's pretty easy to do so normal users shouldn't have any problems with that feature, the bottom line it's that i think JPEGsnoop is worth a look. Available for all Windows versions.
