This may be asking for a miracle, but is there any information embedded inside an image file that contains its original camera given name? I have about 3-4000 images that I edited and renamed and want to change the name ONLY back - is such a thing possible and how would i do this? if it helps I have the original files.

Possibly‚Ķ have you looked into the EXIF data of an original file? – slhck Aug 15 '13 at 19:48
Google "EXIF Viewer or EXIF Editor" for programs that can do this. – LawrenceC Aug 15 '13 at 20:55
