File-Type-WebImages (1.01)

If you already know that the file is an image file, and you want to find out whether it is a PNG, BMP, GIF, or JPEG, this can do that job for you. Other than that it returns undefined for everything, including SVG, which it doesn't handle.

But if you already know that you have image data, you probably already know the format as well, and as it mentions in its own documentation, any of the other modules on CPAN can tell you the mime type, so I can't see what use this is.
