JPEG repair

Stellar Phoenix

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

  • Virus or malware infection in the photos
  • Missing/corrupted/broken header in the files
  • Interruption in between Read/write operation while transferring photos to another device or PC
  • Improper ejection of the memory card or improper shut down of system
  • Usage of camera in low battery may also be a reason for Jpeg corruption
  • Generation Bad sector in the hard drive
  • Operating system corruption
  • Frequent Power surges

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.

  • This document may be damaged (the file may be truncated or incomplete)
  • No Preview Available
  • Can’t read file header! Unknown file format or file not found!
