In many cases when a computer, phone, or mobile device is seized for evidence, the system will have graphic images that might be used as evidence. Obviously, in some cases these graphic images may be the evidence such as in child pornography cases. In other situations, the graphic images may tell us something about where and when the suspect was somewhere specific. Most digital devices "stamp" information on these graphic images that can tell us a lot about the who, what, when, and where the pictures were taken. EXIF Data Exchangeable image file format (EXIF) is a standard set by the digital camera industry to identify formats for digital images and sound files.
