A method of identifying a digital camera is disclosed. First and second digital images generated by the camera have dimensions that are not equal. The method includes calculating noise residuals and normalized cross-correlations (NCCs) between the noise residuals corresponding to candidate translations. The method further includes calculating a noise floor and identifying first and second peak values corresponding to translations. The method further includes calculating a peak ratio, determining that the peak ratio exceeds an alignment threshold and calculating a digital camera fingerprint for the digital camera based on the noise residuals and the first translation. The method further includes receiving a digital image, calculating a noise residual of the digital image, and determining that the image was generated by the digital camera based on the noise residual and the fingerprint and generating a record associating the image with the camera.
