Forensic Imaging Techniques

Course Overview

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. Exercises will include working with still images and working directly with video files with Adobe Photoshop.

Throughout the entire workshop, recommended best practices will be used with non-destructive processes employed whenever possible.

Students must provide their own laptop. If it doesn’t already have Adobe Photoshop or Bridge, the demos versions can be downloaded on day one of class.
