Our JPEG Repair Service will fix corrupt JPEG files. JPEG is a popular image format utilized by many consmer digital camera's and smart phones. Due to the nature of JPEG's storage of image data, corruption can easily occur. Corruption is often first detected by the inability to display digital photos (not a valid image file, too large or corrupt). This is often caused by structural damage: missing or corrupt 'markers'.
The second type of corruption is in the (compressed) image data stream itself. Although the image can be viewed and even edited, colors are distorted and portions of the image may have shifted.
We developed our own JPEG repair tool kit to make the process as efficient as possible, although the repairs require the human eye and manual editing of binary data. This is why we can often repair JPEG files that automatic JPG repair tools can not.
