Digital Photographs are most powerful and trustworthy media for conveying thoughts, emotions or message. Even only a single image is sufficient to reflect every situation or scenario. During past few years, various digital image manipulation tools came into picture and number is increasing. Editing software is available either at nominal rate or free of cost. Edit or alter any digital image for fun and other purposes is now a common practice. Sometimes need arises to check authenticity and originality of image. Digital image forensics plays an important role in this situation. Out of several image forgery methods Copy Move Forgery is one of the easy and effective method. Copy Move Forgery can be used with the intention of either to hide something in the image or to duplicate one region in an image. A study has been carried out to identify suitable scheme for detection of Copy Move Forgery especially in coloured digital images. The proposed scheme uses the concept of template matching.
