I have tried looking in the software that came with it, but with no luck so far. This is probably very basic... I would really value any help please.

OK stays as a black screen when jpeg is loaded......15min later nothing has happened. The image number attached to the image shouldn't be the shutter count cos you can change that(? can't you....she says further displaying her ignorance!!) –  Liz Di Jan 1 '12 at 9:10
Yes, the image number can be reset, roll over after 10K and so forth, so not reliable. –  MikeW Jan 1 '12 at 9:40
See also this for the 500/550D, and links in that question for even older models. A couple of those solutions may work for the 1000D, but I can't confirm. –  mattdm Jan 1 '12 at 13:28

The shutter count should be in the EXIF information, which you can read with ExifTool or other EXIF readers.

There is an EOF utility here which you could try.

Or you can upload a JPG to myshuttercount and it will tell you.
