How To Verify iso Image After Download In Linux

I assume that you have downloaded the image / iso file in a folder. Navigate to the folder where the iso is. You have to get the public gpg key for fedora downloads.

[donato@archdesktop Downloads]$ ls
builds  debian-live--9.0.0-amd64-gnome  Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-25  Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-26
[donato@archdesktop Downloads]$ cd Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-26
[donato@archdesktop Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-26]$ ls
Fedora-Workstation-26-1.5-x86_64-CHECKSUM  Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-26-1.5.iso
[donato@archdesktop Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-26]$ gpg --verify Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-26-1.5.iso
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: the signature could not be verified.
Please remember that the signature file (.sig or .asc)
should be the first file given on the command line.

So this is for fedora distribution. If you're trying to verify another distribution then importing its gpg keys should the same. I downloaded the live workstation iso from their torrent page so it's the only iso i want to verify. Nothing else. I ignored the rest of the fail messages here.
