Conversion of crypt12 files to jpeg file format

Many users are searching for a way to export pictures from WhatsApp archives (for example the older .crypt12 files), because they assume that pictures that were send via WhatsApp are saved in the backups. 

Alas, this is not that easy as pictured send via WhatsApp are saved in the Media/WhatsApp Images folder and then linked to the default Android Gallery, meaning crypt12 to jpeg conversion is certainly not possible. as .crypt12 files do not contain them, you have to look withing WhatsApp folders.
