Default What are those numbers??

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry if this has been asked before. 2 quick questions,
When you take a picture with a blackberry it has a number assigned to it.
eg: 20121223-00475
Just want to check, using the example above, that is the Year (2012), Month (12), Day (23), what are the last 5 digits ?
If you get a picture with these numbers attached to it, can you safely assume that it was taken with a blackberry? or could it have been downloaded and saved on a blackberry and then received these numbers a a way to identify the file?
Cheers

The "last 5 digits" are the sequential serial numbers for the pictures.

00001, 00002, 00003, etc.

If the picture has that file name, it likely was taken by a BlackBerry, however, this is not absolute. A person could have renamed any file like this. You could look in the EXIF data.

Note, however, that simply "downloading and saving" a picture on a BlackBerry would not change the name of the original file and would not produce that type of file name (at least not automatically). Again, anyone can rename a file almost anything.

Bro??

You can easily look at the EXIF data (some of it anyway) on your computer by simply right clicking on the file and click on the "Details" tab.

Otherwise, there are lots of programs you can use such as Picasa, cam2pc, Photoshop, and many others.
