does anyone know if there is a software that I could use for reading camera settings and raw information such as aperture, iso, shutter speed and or what edits have been made on an image, which was taken by other photographers? These images can be also jpeg format saved on google image.

    I think you can see any of these settings as long the photograph exports them. There's many times where they publish (export) by removing them (the metadata) and in that case you cannot restore them. – рüффп Dec 13 '17 at 22:30

You can readily read this information using any photo organising software if you have a version of the image that still has the metadata in it. If you don't have this, there's no way to obtain it. Computer software cannot tell the aperture, ISO, shutter speed etc from simply looking at an image.

As for viewing whether an image is genuine or has been edited, there are various tools that can assist with this without promising complete accuracy, you can do a Google search for "Error Level Analysis" for online tools that can do that, though there are other techniques as well. Keep in mind that some experience is required to interpret what is found.

  • All metadata may also be edited/forged/spoofed very easily. – Michael C Dec 14 '17 at 9:40
