If you tell enough stories, perhaps the moral will show up.



Here's the Interpol (rare to see a .int domain) release on operation Vico. That's impressive work by the image experts, but I think the credit lies with the investigator who had the imagination to see that information was still there and the thing was worth trying. That's the leap I would have failed to take, and it's the difference between a proper investigator and the guy who looks at proxy logs.

After red-eye reduction, obscuring faces is probably the second most popular use for home image processing, the home porners generally botch it, and I've often wondered why packages don't include a better tool. Perhaps they can't find a suitably euphemistic name. Anyway, I suppose we'll now see a slew of unswirl tools.
