The technique also includes analyzing the image to, for example, find evidence that the image was compressed more than once. My impression is that the methodology will give a probability that an image has been modified. This will depend, among other things, on the quality of the fingerprint data and the degree of compression of the image. Of course, the company does not reveal exactly what their process is, so accepting the diagnosis requires an element of faith. I don't think the software will mean the end of fake UFO photos, but it could help to weed out many hoaxes. William Listen to 'Strange Days...
