Forgery detection of images is presently one of the fascinated research fields. Copy-move forgery is the most commonly used methods for image forgery. A novel method is proposed in this paper, which is an effective and advanced method for detecting copy-move forgery. The proposed method is a block matching technique with reduced computational speed and less computational complexities. The efficiency of outcome is also improved. The image is segmented into fixed dimensions of overlying blocks and then discrete cosine transform (DCT) is applied to each block to extract its features. Then, the mean of each block is obtained. The mean of each block is compared with other blocks to find the similarity between the blocks. The computational outcomes are shown that indicates the proposed method is robust to detect copy-move forgery efficiently with enhanced speed.
