    I noticed a bug on my iPad 3 (running iOS 6.0.1) earlier today. It definitely isn't a feature since it could cause troubles for someone. Pardon me, if it was reported before. If you save a partly (or completely) transparent PNG file to your iPad gallery, you'll be able to see one of your deleted pictures as the thumbnail (in the transparent part of the picture). Can anyone confirm this?

    More information I could (or couldn't) find out:
    1) I don't know how it chooses the picture it shows in the thumbnail, it's not the last deleted one.
    2) If you save more empty PNG files, you'll be able to see more deleted pictures in the thumbnails.
    3) Everything is fine in Photostream (a white picture is uploaded).
    4) This bug seems to be iPad only. It couldn't be done on my iPhone 5 running the same version of iOS.

    If you have anything to add to this list, please write it in this thread.

    Weird bug,

    Can I ask though, why were you saving a transparent PNG? Just curious :)

    It is weird.

    I saved a partly transparent PNG from a website, because I wanted it for a tweet, and saw it is mixed with one of my older photos in some way. I immediately realited it is caused by PNG format and downloaded an empty PNG to confirm. :)

    I think you don't see the problem. Deleted photos are stored in iPad and can be "recovered". I don't think that it should happen. Or that it could be solved by restoring the device.

    I think you should make sure Apple know about this. Seems like a potential privacy scandal that they'd want to get fixed in their next release.
