Sun-Sentinel: News Local - Fingerprint technology faces test in court. Should photoshopped fingerprints be admissable evidence? I don't think so - not at this stage. The system currently relies on "the integrity of the individuals involved". Meaning it's not suitable when the outcome could send someone to jail... or to their death. Remember, people used to rely on lie detector tests; but they can be faked, so now it's just an aid to an investigation. If someone fails the test, then that's an indication that you should dig further. It doesn't mean any more than that. Same for photoshopped prints - you can't be sure you haven't altered it when you "enhance" an image.
