For years, photographs have been used to document space-time events and they have often served as evidence in courts. Photographers are able to create composites of analog pictures, but this process is very time consuming and requires expert knowledge. Today, however, advanced digital image editing software makes image alterations straightforward. These challenges our trust in photographs and, in particular, questions pictures as evidence for real-world events. In this paper, we examine one of the most common forms of photographic operation, well-known as image composition or splicing. In this work, we make an significant step towards reducing user interaction for an illuminant-based tampering decision making. We offer a new semiautomatic method that is more reliable than previous approaches. In this method we propose the method to detect the forensic in the photography. For that here we use the SVM classifier for the forensic detection. Initially we identify the illuminant map in the image. We find the face from the photography. For the face detect here we use the violo john method. After face detection we identify the GLCM (Gray Level Co-Occurance Matrix). In GLCM is the statistical information of the image such as energy, entropy, correlation sum of energy and sum of correlation are calculated. And also we extract the LBP feature. The extracted feature will pass to the SVM classifier for the training. SVM is stands for Support vector machine. It is a binary classifier. It is a kernel based learning classifier. The trained classifier will predict about the image whether it is original or forensic image.
