A JPEG file is stored as a combination of two parts. The first part (known as the image metadata) contains information about the image (such as EXIF date, time, and shooting info) along with an embedded thumbnail image, whereas the second part (or the scan segment) comprises the actual image data. At the time of creation, it is more likely that a JPEG file will not get corrupted or damaged.
However, the risk of damage substantially increases as these files are moved or copied to other devices. In addition, there are several other reasons for Photo corruption. If corruption is within the thumbnail part, the image thumbnail will fail to open. In case the corruption has reached the image data part, the main image will get damaged.
Causes for Jpg file corruption
At times, the Photo fails to open in any of the JPEG decoder. In other cases, you may notice gray areas or lines in your image. In addition, there are a few more signs of image corruption often supported by some error messages as mentioned below.
