Photoshop Forensics is designed to meet the needs of law enforce­ment and intel­li­gence per­son­nelimage and video ana­lysts, crime ana­lysts, latent print spe­cial­ists, ques­tioned doc­u­ment exam­in­ers, crime scene pho­tog­ra­phers, and oth­er foren­sic spe­cial­ists. The course spe­cial­izes in teach­ing tech­niques and work­flow for using Photoshop in a foren­sic envi­ron­ment.
