Anti-fraud encryption software scrambles the appearance of time sensitive PDF files(tickets to concerts or events, etc.) if someone tries to illegally manipulate them using Photoshop. The software introduces JPEG files from the person’s own Photoshop cache and these files manipulate the original PDF visually, creating a scramble of familiar images. The more the person attempts to edit the PDF the further the software degrades the original image/information. The PDF becomes unrecognizable, and so the original information is kept safe. Once the date of the event has passed, the anti-fraud becomes redundant and the encryption expires.
I have sorted the screenshots(the action of “saving” the file is a trigger for the encryption) in an order where there are visual anchors in each shot as one image fades into the next.
