Johnny Depp Expert Reveals Amber Heard Abuse Photos Were Edited

Johnny Depp’s legal team brought in Norbert Neumeister, a metadata expert, who revealed that some of Amber Heard’s photos were put through a photo editing software.

He revealed that by analysing the photos’ metadata that he was able to determine that the photos were put through a photo editing software (via YouTube).

Neumeister in his testimony did try to explain this in more detail, but the defence kept on objecting to his testimony.

Instead, he ended up focusing on the metadata in the photos, and here’s what he had to say on the matter:

One photo showed a bruise on Amber Heard’s arm.

Neumeister said that all three files “don’t match forensically” and all “had to go through some type of transformation to change sizes.”

Neumeister was asked to look at three different versions of the photo which showed Amber Heard’s bruised arm.

All three of these photos were submitted into evidence and he determined that they must have gone through some sort of editing software because the file sizes were just too big.

Neumeister summised:

All three photos had to go through some type of transformation to change sizes.

However, in giving his opinion on the matter of the photos, Neumeister testified that there was “no way for any forensic expert to validate these photos”.

That said, he did state that he believed several photographs were modified.

This is not the first time that Amber Heard has been accused of having edited her abuse photographs in court.

Depp’s attorney, Camille Vasquez, accused Heard of editing her injury photos in cross-examination last week.

When two pictures were presented side by side to the court, Heard claimed they were two separately taken photos with different lighting.

“The light is on in both of these pictures though,” Vasquez argued.

Heard responded by saying one of the lights is a “vanity light.”

“Isn’t it true you just edited these photographs?” Vasquez said to Heard.

“And you just enhanced the saturation from one of these photos to make your face look more red.”
