What is image redaction?

Image redaction is a process by which sensitive or classified information is blacked out from a document so that the document can be made available for public viewing. Redaction can be a very important step in protecting privacy or ensuring security. In the past, redaction was always done manually. However, advances in technology have enabled software to perform the task with greater precision and speed.

When is image redaction necessary?

Image redaction is necessary any time when there is a document that contains names that cannot be revealed to the public, or other information that is to sensitive to be made available to the general public. Redaction is often necessary for scanned image documents, as PDFs and other image files are often used to store files digitally. Redaction is especially important for digital files due to the ease with which they can be shared with many readers.
