Solving crime with Photoshop


On Wednesday 19th September, I had the great pleasure to meet Adobe Sr. Solutions Architect John Penn II who presented at RMIT in Melbourne. Following being part of the Photoshop product team for a number of years, John developed a passion for how Photoshop can help law enforcement solve crimes. He approached the Adobe CEO with a request to focus full time on this passion and he now dedicates his work to helping law enforcement solve cases with digital imaging technology.


John has helped investigators all over the world solve crimes with the aid of image manipulation. He has a particular passion for working with investigators who focus on crimes against children.

Photoshop tips & tricks at Swinburne


Swinburne University invited me to run a Photoshop workshop for teaching & admin staff on Monday September 17.


About 30 registered for this event and most were new to Photoshop, or only had a rudimentary understanding.

We went through a range of simple (and some more advanced) techniques that are practical for an education context.


All my resources for this event can be found via –


Special thank you to Sofia Ridwan, Swinburne’s Manager, Collaboration and Partnerships for her help is making this event happen.
