People have this old fashioned myth that an image is an array of pixels on your screen. When it has been turned into a spy device that has five different kinds of hidden codes we know about, plus secret watermarks and crap we don't, from who knows how many pieces of hardware and software. Not to mention way more resolution, apparently, than is needed to read the label on a package of cheese.

For all that, we get pictures that you can't paste from one web browser window to another without them turning black and losing features. Because, like "phones", the thing they are supposed to do is such a low priority, behind so many spies in line, that they are gradually losing the ability to do it at all.

Stewart sent the image on EncroChat, an encrypted messaging service used exclusively by criminals that was infiltrated by police in a major operation last year.

This sounds like usual CNN distortion. All encrypted networks are exclusively-criminal, and any who don't toe the globalist line are extremists. It looked as if the BBC article doesn't indict the service itself, but the original story on its infiltration calls it a "crime chat network." From that story:

The system operated on customised Android phones and, according to its website, provided "worry-free secure communications".

Customers had access to features such as self-destructing messages that deleted from the recipient's device after a certain length of time.

Real criminal masterminds selling Androids with custom ROMs.

The moral of the story is: when you take a picture of your cheese, don't hold it in your palm with your fingers splayed out as if you're signalling to your agency handler to recall you from the field. Just my two pence.
