This is how I open a picture that I have trouble with. If there is an easier way, I'd like to know it too.
Hope this helps.
i have similar problems to other people within certain forums here,
with pictures failing to load.
i have searched and searched for answers, i have tried irfanview, with no avail. please help!!!
im running xp home on an amd athlon. the pictures exist including details regarding the size of the image and the origional name with the extension .jpg. i have tried to change the extension but nothing changes. irfanview says "cant read the file header, unknown file format, file not found"
this problem may have occured when transferring the affected pictures onto a cd...but i am not sure.
i have also tried other programs to recover lost files but this didnt work, as the files actually exist but are un-openable if this makes scence.
any help would solve my headache with this problem
