Face composite construction : in-view and from-memory quality and improvement with practice.
Following a crime, witnesses are often asked by the police to construct a composite likeness of the perpetrator.
However, previous research indicated that the quality of the likenesses produced by commercial composite systems (e.g., Photofit and Ident-kit) are very poor.
This study investigated whether the face composites produced using the Mac-A-Mug Pro composite system from memory and while viewing the target differ in quality, and whether quality improves with practice.
