  • A new filter that allows users to deal with fake mirrored images. The case of the fake war photographer Eduardo Martins which was reported in early September 2017 puts in evidence that reverse image search engines often fail to detect mirrored images. This use case gave us the idea to propose a tool to overcome such fake images. In the Magnifier feature, there is now a flip filter that allows you to mirror the image before sending it to Google Images. The generated mirrored image can be also downloaded to the user’s PC. See the example bellow and watch the video tutorial on the InVID channel, to see how to proceed.
