how to identify software used to edit a certain picture

Trying to locate the software I used on a certain picture. I really like the finished product.

This is the photo in question. I need to know the software that was used to create it.

Thank you, but I am not familiar with that program, nor could I even find it.

If anyone else has any suggestions, they would be most welcome. Thank you

can't really be done with that image

In reply to: Re: ERSA ImageDoc

I took the image, opened in an hex editor in Linux (bless) and searched it entirely, and there was NO header nor footer information about the program or camera that created it. The file is as raw an image file as one can get. If there was metadata it wasn't much in it beyond identifying it as a JFIF aka JPEG and nothing indicating the program or camera used. There may be a separate metafile on the computer you stored it on, but those are special (dot?) files typically hidden on windows computers. Have you right clicked on the image and chosen properties to see if any information is stored as metadata on your system? If you had this originally on another computer, maybe a metadata file is on it with such information.

metadata

First off, thank you for your replies. Secondly, unfortunately, yes I have checked the properties on the pc itself. You bring up an excellent point though. I have numerous backups, and system images on an external backup drive. Perhaps it would be wise to check that for a metafile.
