From the Back Cover:

The science of digital imaging can be divided into two separate branches: the techniques that explain how to use and create digital images, and the technical knowledge that is necessary to design cameras, computers, and software. The expert witness should be a skilled practitioner in the techniques and have enough understanding of the technical knowledge to answer hard questions that might be asked in court. Understanding Forensic Digital Imaging is the first book to address both types of knowledge, offering a comprehensive and thorough approach to the subject of digital imaging, providing the reader with necessary information about the techniques and a solid understanding of the technology.

Providing information on the basics of photography, while also covering the complex concepts particular to forensic science, Understanding Forensic Digital Imaging is a one-stop resource for the forensic expert. With its unparalleled coverage of digital imaging - including a chapter on establishing quality requirements that is more comprehensive than any other source currently available - this book is an essential read for any forensic expert who is required to work with digital images and testify in court.
