I'm affraid mimetypes cannot help.
[bsergean at marge1 mime]$ cp /media/photos/Pooky/IMG_0754.JPG .
[bsergean at marge1 mime]$ cp /media/photos/Pooky/IMG_0754.JPG foo.txt
[bsergean at marge1 mime]$ python
Python 2.4.3 (#2, Oct 6 2006, 15:32:41)
[GCC 4.1.1 20060724 (prerelease) (4.1.1-3mdk)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import mimetypes
The unix file command might help thought:
[bsergean at marge1 mime]$ file foo.txt
foo.txt: JPEG image data, EXIF standard 2.2
