Session Description 

Did you know that there’s more to images than just the visual context? This session explores how you can go beyond merely looking at photos for incriminating information. Intel from underlying EXIF information can be used in virtually every investigation, including homicide investigations, drug and stolen good cases, sexual assault, ICAC cases, and more.

Featured Topics

  • The unknown intel that photos can provide
  • What is EXIF data, and how it can be used in investigations (date, time, and precise location info) 
  • Appropriately asking for EXIF data in Search Warrants
  • Information from images received via social media providers
  • Mapping images in PLX
  • Analyzing every image in your data set with PLX’s Image Gallery
  • Exporting images from PLX
