Contrast enhancement operation is often used to highlight some information, weaken or remove some unwanted information in tampered images. In this paper, a tampered image detecting method is proposed based on wavelet analysis for specific fingerprints left by contrast enhancement operation in image. Firstly, the RGB color space of image was converted into YCbCr color space, and the Y monochrome channel image was extracted; secondly, the normalized energy was calculated in the wavelet details sub-bands after wavelet transform of image's pixel value histogram of the component; finally, the tampered image was identified according to the normalized energy.
