JPEGsnoop - JPEG File Decoding Utility v.1.5.2


JPEGsnoop is a free Windows application that examines and decodes the inner details of JPEG and MotionJPEG AVI files. It can also be used to analyze the source of an image to test its authenticity.IntroductionEvery digital photo contains a wealth of hidden information -- JPEGsnoop was written to expose these details to those who are curious.Not only can one determine the various settings that were used in the digital camera in taking the photo (EXIF metadata, IPTC), but one can also extract information that indicates the quality and nature of the JPEG image compression used by the camera in saving the file. Each digical cameras specifies a compression quality levels, many of them wildly different, leading to the fact that some cameras produce far better JPEG images than others.What can I do?Check out a few of the many possible uses for JPEGsnoop!One of the latest features in JPEGsnoop is an internal database that compares an image against a large number of compression signatures. JPEGsnoop reports what digital camera or software was likely used to generate the image. This is extremely useful in determining whether or not a photo has been edited / tampered in any way. If the compression signature matches Photoshop, then you can be pretty sure that the photo is no longer an original! This type of analysis is sometimes referred to as Digital Image Ballistics / Forensics.JPEGsnoop reports a huge amount of information, including: quantization table matrix (chrominance and luminance), chroma subsampling, estimates JPEG Quality setting, JPEG resolution settings, Huffman tables, EXIF metadata, Makernotes, RGB histograms, etc. Most of the JPEG JFIF markers are reported. In addition, you can enable a full huffman VLC decode, which will help those who are learning about JPEG compression and those who are writing a JPEG decoder.Other potential uses: determine quality setting used in Photoshop Save As or Save for Web settings, increasing your scanner quality, locating recoverable images / videos, decoding AVI files, examining .THM files, JPEG EXIF thumbnails, extract embedded images in Adobe PDF documents, etc.File Types SupportedJPEGsnoop will open and attempt to decode any file that contains an embedded JPEG image, such as: * .JPG - JPEG Still Photo * .THM - Thumbnail for RAW Photo / Movie Files * .AVI* - AVI Movies * .DNG - Digital Negative RAW Photo * .CRW, .CR2, .NEF, .ORF, .PEF - RAW Photo * .MOV* - QuickTime Movies, QTVR (Virtual Reality / 360 Panoramic) * .PDF - Adobe PDF Documents* Note that video file formats (such as .AVI and .MOV) are containers, which can include video streams encoded in one of a wide variety of codecs. JPEGsnoop can only interpret this video footage if the codec used is based on Motion JPEG (MJPG).Help Support JPEGsnoop DevelopmentIf you have found JPEGsnoop useful and would like to support its continued development, consider making a small contribution. Donations will help encourage me to add new and interesting features. Found an interesting use for the tool? Let me know! System Requirements:This application has been designed and tested to run on Windows XP and Windows Vista, but it should also work for Windows 95/98/NT/2000.InstallationNo installation required. JPEGsnoop is fully portable. Simply unzip the download and run!Terms of UseJPEGsnoop is free for personal and commerial use. Commercial users are kindly suggested to leave me a brief message so that I can understand your needs and make future versions more useful.Recent Features: * XMP APP1 & ICC Header display * GPS EXIF metadata display * Full detailed Huffman VLC decoding output for those interested in writing a decoder or learning JPEG compression * Automatic display of YCC DC block values (16-bit) * MCU Grid overlay and automatic display of mouse MCU position and file offset in image display window. * Test overlay function enhanced to allow quick apply and binary code readout. * Image zoom level from 12.5% - 800%. * Extract embedded JPEGs -- can be used to extract thumbnails, hidden JPEG files, as well as frames from Motion JPEG AVI files. * Compression detection enhanced to detect rotated signatures, comment field. * Full AVI file parsing (to identify MotionJPEG) * DQT table searches in Executables (for "hackers") * Detect edited images or identify original digital camera that took a photo! * Integrated database of thousands of compression signatures (image fingerprint) for digital cameras and editing software * File overlay test function * Multi-channel preview: RGB, YCC, R/G/B, Y/Cb/Cr * Pixel position lookup into file offset * Examine Motion JPEG .AVI or .MOV (Quicktime) files (MJPG or MJPEG) and play through! * Examine any file fragments that may contain a JPEG image * YCC to RGB Color correction / clipping statistics reports * Command-line execution * Huffman variable-length code statistics * Expansion of DHT (Huffman Table Expansion into bitstrings) * Determine IJG JPEG Quality factor
