Packages and Binaries:

recoverjpeg

recoverjpeg tries to recover JFIF (JPEG) pictures and MOV movies from a peripheral. This may be useful if you mistakenly overwrite a partition or if a device such as a digital camera memory card is bogus.

This package provides these executables: recoverjpeg, recovermov, remove-duplicates and sort-pictures. The remove-duplicates is useful to remove duplicate files found. sort-pictures can be used to sort pictures according to exif date.

This package acts as a carver (data carving) and is useful in forensics investigations.

SORT-PICTURES(1)                                              SORT-PICTURES(1)

NAME
       sort-pictures - sort pictures according to exif date

SYNOPSIS
       sort-pictures

DESCRIPTION
       Sort-pictures uses the exif tags in jpeg pictures recovered by recover-
       jpeg in directories.  It creates hard links  to  organize  sorted  pic-
       tures.

       Running  sort-pictures  will scan the current directory for files named
       after the template image?????*.jpg (image followed  by  at  least  five
       characters  followed by .jpg).  A new hardlink will be created for each
       file in one of the following directories:

       o invalid The picture is an invalid JFIF file.

       o small The picture size is less than 100,000 bytes.

       o undated Sort-pictures was unable to determine the date of the picture
         from the exif tags.

       o YYYY-MM-DD A directory representing the date at which the picture was
         taken.
