Photoshop Forensics is designed to meet the needs of law enforcement and intelligence personnel–image 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. It’s goal is to help you build an accountable, repeatable workflow to analyze and enhance images for investigation and litigation while remaining true to the images original content and context.
