That wouldn't erase colour data kiwibeat.

It is more likely that the files were saved in monochrome and the comparative file size might be a clue. I'm not sure how the colour is encoded on jpegs but I can't see it being stripped by a simple file save to external media.

I wait with bated breath for the answer to this one when it finally emerges.
