A Keith man who downloaded indecent images and videos of children including a baby used a relative's internet connection on one occasion.
During October 2019, Police Scotland received intelligence that Facebook user Euan Davidson, of Fraser Place, had uploaded a Category A indecent image of a child on October 3, 2018.
A search warrant was obtained for Davidson's home but a preliminary examination of the 40-year old's electronic devices found no evidence of child pornography.
However they were then submitted for further analysis.
Speaking today at Inverness Sheriff Court, fiscal depute Robert Weir said: "During the examination of the mobile telephone 16 category A, B and C indecent images of children were found.
"The children featured were estimated to be between four and 14 years of age."
Mr Weir stated that as well as the still images, seven category A and C videos of boys aged between infancy and 15 years-old were also discovered.
Defence solicitor Matthew O'Neill said a background report would be required before sentencing.
Sheriff Sara Matheson deferred the case until May 17 and immediately placed Davidson's on the Sex Offender's Register.
