Windows 7: Find All Photos Taken By Samsung Phone

Find All Photos Taken By Samsung Phone

Is there a way to find all photos taken by a Samsung Phone across numerous folders (about 140)?

I know on an individual folder I can set the sorting to camera maker, then search for Samsung.

But I need to do this across 140 different folders.

Why? I'm glad you asked...

My wife's hard drive was deleted / partitioned before her business vacation photos were backed up.

While I recovered EVERY photo off the drive (even those that had been deleted), they are now scrambled about across 140 different folders with names like: 01, 02, 03 etc...

So I need to find a way to find those photos taken with her Samsung Note phone.

Thanks in advance.

(Yes, I googled this first, and the only answer I saw was a stack exchange question that linked to a now-deleted microsoft document - Not very helpful.)

The phone's name is in the EXIF metadata of each picture. For example pictures taken by my Samsung Galaxy S4 have a value of SCH-I545 for the "Model", in the EXIF metadata.

I have ACDSee Pro 8 installed (it is not free, but it is very good). One of its tools is View -> Search, and then you can set up whatever type of search argument(s) you care to define. And looking through the metadata associated with pictures is one of its search capabilities.

So with this product you can set up a search to, for example, specifically look for "MODEL is SCH-I545" in the EXIF metadata in a set of folders (e.g. all of your 140 folders), and it will find all of the pictures which were taken by my S4. The thumbnails for all pictures which satisfy the search can then be selected (using its Explorer-like tree view), and then you can do whatever you want with that selection (e.g. copy them to another location).
