The aim of the `Image and Signal Processing' section at the INCC/NICC is to develop their own software tools in image processing. This paper gives an overview of the image processing environment that has been developed for about two years in the section. Above all, the main idea of FIPE (Forensic Image Processing Environment) is to build an user- friendly graphical interface especially adapted to forensic expert needs. The forensic expert's work is task oriented which means that the method used depends upon which information is needed from the image. Therefore, FIPE is presented as a menu with different functions which the user can pick up. Among the different tools, classical image enhancement methods, e.g. LUT enhancement, linear and non- linear filters, are implemented. Zoom and color image processing, e.g. color extraction, are also available. A regularization method using FFT is also implemented for out- of-focus deblurring. The environment is currently used on a daily basis in our section and is in constant development.
