The ability to work with, and retrieve images, is vital to forensic and criminal case work. During a five-decade-long career, author John C. Russ has taught methods for image processing and measurement to thousands of students. Forensic Uses of Digital Imaging, Second Edition distills his classroom and workshop material to present the information most relevant to forensic science.

Since the publication of the first edition, there have been many significant changes in technology that have revolutionized the ways digital images are used in forensic investigations. Fully updated, the second edition:

  • Covers the widespread advancements of digital imaging photography and processing
  • Discusses the increased power, storage capacity, and use of digital cameras, laptop computers, tablets, and cell phones in forensic science
  • Gives real-world examples to illustrate comparisons between different processing options
  • Includes hundreds of full-color images that demonstrate technologies and techniques
  • Addresses issues of admissibility of forensic investigation results under Frye and Daubert rules
  • Provides guidelines and suggestions for effectively presenting and explaining results

Forensic Uses of Digital Imaging, Second Edition explains concepts with minimal jargon, and the methods and tools described in this book can be implemented in a broad spectrum of available computer programs. By demonstrating how these methods can be applied to a variety of images, this book helps readers develop the ability to understand when and how specific techniques should be used. It will be of particular use in casework for practicing photography and imaging police and forensic professionals who need to verify and explain both interpretations and processes to legal professionals, judges, and juries.

Review:

"This is the second edition of this book and it comprises five chapters covering equipment, processing, comparison and measurement, and the presentation of evidence. It covers the basics of all of these subject before progressing to more advanced techniques. The descriptions ... and the examples given are clear and aid the reader in understanding the lesson. This book is a good overview of the technical side of forensic photography for those of us who have little experience ... useful for those with more experience." – CSEye, November 2017, a publication of the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, UK

"Forensic Uses of Digital Imaging, Second Edition ... is highly technical and the text does a good job of breaking this down to a more readily understandable level. It covers a number of topics ... important for a forensic photographer to understand to be truly competent in today’s world of complex technology ... not addressed in detail in other reference books."―Brian Kohlhepp, Detective Division, Ross Township Police Department, Pittsburgh, PA, USA; published in Forensic Science Review, January 2018
