Firstly, please don't reply to an existing email if you want to ask a
new question. To see why this is bad, look at where on this mail
archive page your post has appeared (and where this reply will appear):

The same problem happens for people using a "threaded view" in their
email software.

To answer your question, the easiest way is by the location of the
headphone socket. If it's in the middle of the top of your ipod, then
it's a photo. If it's on the right-hand side on the top, then it's a video.

Apple also have a page describing the differences between ipods here:
