    Request acknowledged, Agent.

    This is Silverfox from OWL division. I heard you might be having some problems with retreaving corrupted data. Research is a major part of my job so I should be able to help you. As always, these are nudges that you can use if you need it. If you still need help, there is the IRC and you can Call for Help from the field.

    Nudge 1:
    When we get corrupted photos, sometimes we have to recreate the image using photo editing equipment. A good eye and a pencil/paper will work as well.

    Nudge 2:
    I know this is going to sound like I am throwing you to the wolves, but you have all the information you need for the redaction. Research the events and don't overthink it.

    Hang in there. These skills will take you far in the Agency. If you still need aid, go to the IRC or call for help in the field.

    Added personal hints and some guidelines. Thanks to agent @Silverfox who made the thread in the first place.

    Use this thread to discuss theories and keep track of clues and hints.
    Also, please post here the link to any document (or similar) created to cooperate on the mission.
    Meanwhile I'll try to keep this post updated with useful info and hints.
    Note: It's recomended to download all images and files in order to work with less difficulty.

    Hints
    Part 1
    The case number is in the image
    MSPaint or a similar software could be useful

    Part 2
    The photo id is in the image
    MSPaint or a similar software could be useful

    Part 3
    You need to investigate the leads in the list, Google is your friend

    However, as not all agents are in possession of photo-manipulation software, less image-necessary data recreation can be done with a good eye and a pen + paper.

    Something as simple as paint works but yes, you are right.

    I was able to do the photo manipulation with Microsoft Paint using the selection tool

    A question for clarification purposes.
    I'm not native English speaker, so I'm not sure I understand what
    "substance redacted from the list"
    means.
    Anyone can help with clarification? Because I'm pretty sure I found the right information about
    those photos, and all the data about that event,
    but have no clue what that phrase means, so can't get the right answer.
    Thanks for help.

    Redacted in this instance can be understood as "removed", as in blacked out, so:
    "Item removed/blacked out from the list" :)
