Facial composites produced by eyewitnesses with the assistance of the police are often a poor likeness to the offender. However, recently developed computerized systems that are designed to closely utilize the holistic processes implicated in face perception may provide a solution. Experiments are reported in which composites produced using E-FIT, a feature-based system, were compared to EFIT-V, a contemporary holistic system. No system differences in similarity to the target were found. However, morphing up to 16 composites from both systems was found to be advantageous, resulting in increased likeness ratings to the target and also increased correct naming rates.
