Perceiving and interpreting color phenomena is a complex process for the human brain. Obtaining the true color of an object requires different experimental, physical, and theoretical results. By examining image features, color, and other aspects, individuals can study techniques for applying full-color images. In this context, color chemistry has been used in crime investigations to detect the time of death. It can be challenging for police to physically examine decomposed dead bodies, especially if they have been unknown for days, weeks, or even months. This makes the task much harder for law enforcement officials. An innovative approach has been developed to assist the police in investigating cases more efficiently. This approach enables them to solve crimes from the convenience of their offices, thereby enhancing their productivity.
