I"ve recovered some JPGs via a file recovery program, however they come out looking prefer this:

*
and there"s no pevaluation photo. And once I click to open it, I gain this message:"The file Jpg could not be opened. It might be damaged or usage a document format that Preview does not recognize."

So how carry out I repair my Jpg imeras through this problem? BTW I"m using El Capitan on a 2008 iMac.

You are watching: It may be damaged or use a file format that preview doesn’t recognize.

They"re most likely not JPEG images. That is, the recoextremely software application assigned the wrong file type expansion to something else.

You have the right to sometimes number out what a document must be by dropping it right into TextEdit. You"ll check out a lot of garbage characters as TextEdit tries to make feeling out a binary file displayed as text. But, what you can uncover in the clear message (readable English words) are things like the name of the app that developed it, file type/encoding, or other clues that may aid you recognize what it is.

Interesting because I"ve accidentally opened JPG papers in Text modify prior to yet never phelp attention to the text that popped up... So do I look for amiddle the message to identify what type of file it is?

If you cannot open up the photo in Pevaluation, then tbelow is bit to be done via it, or without far deeper technical inspection. If you have the right to open it, the Pevaluation Inspector will tell you more about the picture. A fall-back could be to try opening the .jpg through a free trial of GraphicConverter.

The recoextremely software may have actually simply given you a binary data blob, and also determined to add the .jpg extension, bereason it didn"t understand what else to perform via it.

It needs a bit of luck. If you check out XML in the message somewbelow, then it might be a Word record (from Office 2011 or later); an HTML file; a .plist file, and so on There are fairly a couple of apps that write information as XML. So, you"d need to store transforming the extension and trying to open up it after each change.

Others are even more directly forward. Such as, you may discover the word TIFF. Which is a basic one since you would certainly simply readjust the expansion from .jpg to .tif .

Sometimes you might discover the creator, such as the word Adobe in the text. With any kind of luck, it additionally has actually the specific app called in the message, such as Illustrator or InDeauthorize. If not, you attempt the miscellaneous types of extensions the apps usage and also view which one is correct. That"s a lot under Photoshop given that it deserve to compose many different kinds of raster imeras.

It"s all hit and miss out on. There may not be anypoint in clear message that will certainly give you a clue.

Dumb question, but I"mm ask this anyway, but just how carry out I use the Graphic Converter to determine the state of a photo or exactly how to settle it(if possible)?
