Default Unique fingerprint?

There was an article in The Washington Post last week that stated "Every online picture has a unique numerical fingerprint..."

On first thought that made some sense because I figured it might be made of the DNS number plus perhaps some sort of numeric folder and file id but then I decided that this doesn't make any sense because if you move the image to a different website or changed the folder or the file name, the numerical id would change...

Sooo...does anyone know if the statement in the Post is true and if so, what is used to create the id?
