Adobe Photoshop has become one of the most-used imaging tools in law enforcement for tasks from printing crime scene photos to latent print enhancement and forensic video analysis. It is important that law enforcement agencies utilize this tool using valid forensic procedures, maintaining the integrity of visual evidence.
September 3-6, 2019
This four-day workshop is limited to a maximum of 24 students. The course begins with an introduction to Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge, developing best practices and then using this tool in a Forensic Video Analysis workflow including initial analysis, clarification, on-screen comparison techniques, and creating demonstrative evidence exhibits.
