Digital photodocumentation

From: Daria Keynan <dkeynan>

We are a private conservation studio. We have been doing all our
photo documentation with 35mm slides. The reason we have not
switched to digital photography is that there does not seem to be a
consensus about the status of digital images as legal documents.
Nikon now markets authentication software that seems to solve the
problem since it apparently keeps a record of alterations to an
image. Does anyone have experience with this program or any other
that is specifically designed to make a distinction between an
altered and unaltered image? Have other conservators come up with
another solution to identifying a digital image as an original
unaltered photograph?
