Software specialist Adobe will show how image manipulation and deep fakes can be unmasked with the help of artificial intelligence.

Also on the agenda on Saturday is the topic of "NFT - Hype or Hope?", which highlights new business models for photographers who are particularly active as artists. In the second half of the day, a panel discussion moderated by the Female Photo Club will focus on parenthood and self-employment in professional photography.
