It wouldn’t be wrong Adobe is to designers and creative professionals, what Microsoft Office is to a whole lot of others. The software inarguably is quite the backbone for millions of designing, editing, painting and whatnot. With this background, upping the ante when it comes to security measures is an order. Here’s what we know about how you can make use of Adobe’s recent authentication update.
Earlier last month, American multinational computer software company Adobe announced that it’s popular image editing platform Photoshop will soon see a tech update. The update will help verify the authenticity of the images it is dealing with.
The news came in, not without eyebrows being raised. At the pure irony of the announcement, given that Photoshop is indeed an image editing software. Meant to edit, chop, crop, colour, superimpose, and whatnot. Basically, churning out end results that in fact are the same as the original ‘authentic images’.
Battling the fakes
But the Adobe update will add tags to the image in order to give you more information on where the image came from. This information includes the original photographer of the image, when it was taken, where it was taken and so on. All the details sign cryptographically. This tech will also find its way to Adobe’s social media network, Behance.
This tech, everything said and done,will definitely help professionals and users of the platform to debunk bogus content. Especially those misused and altered extensively. While it does seem to come as a boon in the age of rampant misinformation, fake news and doctored truth, how effective the tech update will eventually prove itself to be, is yet to be seen.
Good then, huh? As long as we’re waiting it out. And just sit back and enjoy these updates coming in day in, day out.
