Actually that's not true.  The nature of a file in Unix is neither

That's more of a philosophical question, but a JPEG image is a JPEG
image. Whether you treat it like text, bytes, an image or a
pseudo-random source is another matter entirely. Your camera didn't
take a text file or a bit of random binary data, it took a picture in
JPEG format. It's a practical question: how many times that image will
be used as that, an image, as opposed to as any other thing?
