    So I have a bit of a problem. I used my iphone a while back to take some questionable photos that I later deleted. Today, when I saved a partially transparent .png image from the internet and went to look at it in the Photos app, I noticed that the .png image thumbnail is laying transparent over said deleted questionable pictures.

    This is undesirable.

    Are these just stored thumbnails? I have noticed that if I save an additional .png, the thumbnail changes to a different old deleted pic, meaning more than one of these old deleted pics are saved.
    My phone is jailbroken. Is there a place in ifile that I could go and delete old data? Thanks. I'm an idiot.

    I made an account specifically to ask this question. The humor of my situation doesn't escape me and I figured I might as well laugh.

    OP - Do you have a Mac or a PC?

    Oh, no, he's quite proud of those pictures. The "questionable" photos were the few he accidentally took that weren't of that.

    You should probably post some screenshots as proof and then maybe someone will have a solution.

    :D

    Launch 'Image Capture' on the Mac while the phone is plugged in. Do these photos show up in there too?

    Ok, so it's definitely some kind of drawing error in the photos app, not an actual return of the photos.

    Try going to the home screen, double-clicking the home button and holding down on the 'photos' app in the task bar to force-quit it. Any luck? Reset the phone too if that doesn't work, maybe?

    I think child pornography might be against forum rules.
