Odd program. Doesn't install as native Windows program. Installs in the download folder and makes no desktop icon. I had to manually make a shortcut. I suppose I will have to move it manually to the Programs folder...

Unsure why but when I try to get this to repair some damaged JPG's I found on an old trashed xD card where the image damage looks like the JPG data was truncated or overlapped with other data maybe due to fragmentation in the original file but the recovery utility only presenting contiguous sector data and when a repair is attempted it does not resolve the grey ending to the image by repairing it or at worst just removing the section from the image dimensions (cropping it out) the defect remains but the Exif data is entirely stripped from the resultant repair attempt. Is that intentional? I cannot share the source image as it belongs to someone else and I don't have permission to share it with anyone else.

Joep, My apologies for not composing easily readable text for non native English speakers I am Dyslexic and have a significant short term memory deficit due to oxygen starvation when I was a child which makes written text composition even more difficult.

I completely understand that you cannot tell without examining the images and neither can I as there is no observable difference in character composition when viewing the possibly truncated images in a hex editor.

I did find it difficult to try different options in the patch tool pane as it too often became inaccessible or unresponsive to mouse pointer activity for no apparent reason... I could not discern what makes it active and what makes the pane inactive so did not try every conceivable patch option or feature as I would have done normally. I found it often just produced a small 8K stub of a file that obviously was not a valid JPG.

A simple "fix" where the tail end JPEG data is truncated or overwritten with other non-JPEG data could be to add a crop tool to crop off the grey'd out padding and losslessly generate a JPEG out of the selected data area and include the original Exif if not completely replacing a corrupted header.

Technically I can load such images in say Irfanview or PhotoShop and crop the images and save them out as a new JPG file but that is a lossy process as it involves recompressing the cropped raster image again with the lossy JPEG algorithm...

Your tool understanding the JPEG data stream could be made to simply crop snapping to the JPEG cells and losslessly transcode the data into a new dimension JPG image.

Ken, try right clicking on the file setup.exe and selecting properties and then changing the blocked setting to unblocked or do that on the zip file before extracting the contents to a seperate folder,
then renaming the setup.exe to JPGRepair.exe so windows and windows defender don't confuse the program with an installer and apply different security template to it.

PLEASE allow the program to be run at full screen & or put handles along edges to allow dragging to size. The program area & ESPECIALLY TEXT is just to GD small & hurts the eyes to use on a higher res screen. Bizarre program behavior IMO.

Your participation here is extremely welcome and I can see that you take feedback into account, so I wanted to share that with you.

Joep, I'm on a brand new Win 10 pro machine, also running at 1366x786, default (100%) scaling. Honestly I think 75% of the problem is the boxy font and its tracking and (lack of?) kerning. On my screen, the words in the status bar (width, height etc.) are virtually the only words that are crisp and very legible. The squared off letters everywhere else are hard to process visually. Combine that with the lower case drive letters and the weird square brackets with the double lines and it's just hard to move past that top left corner, where most people's eyes go first. The effect is intensified by the *image* of that same corner that appears in the instructions in the main screen, and by the white on black instructions, a colour combo that requires crisp text. Thanks for asking. HTH because clearly you have a winner with the functionality!

Joep,
My screen resolution is 1024 x 768 and I can reach the right side its right side. The problem is with the program window which size can't be changed, so the right side can't be seen even if I move the window, and its edges remain on the beginning of the options with the most part hidden.

Reply   |   Comment by Reussite Oisillon  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

dana, I suspect your problem is caused by your custom high DPI scaling setting of 120% which makes the effective resolution alot less than 1366 x768 either try reducing scaling to 100% or adjusting the compatability settings in the right click properties Compatability tab for this program... I can't give you specific settings you will need to use but I suspect you can find a setting that will work by disabling scaling for this program only. I believe at 120% scaling you'd need a screen resolution of 1640 x 922 to see the entire window of this program!

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

TK, just tried setting my systems high DPI scaling to 200% on 1920x1080 and no combination of program compatability settings allowed this program to override the systems high DPI scaling so it always exceeded the zoomed desktop size. Only solution with non-high DPI aware programs with a fixed size window that is equal or slightly less than the screen resolution is to reduce the High DPI scaling until the window fits inside the display area. I returned mine back to 100% as everything works better that way.

Looks like an interesting and useful program. I have a whole DVD of JPGs that I created, but they all appear to be corrupt (including thumbnails). These were shot with a Sony Mavica, which used floppy disks for "film" and more than likely the floppy drive I used to copy them was faulty.

This was from several years ago, so I've long since resigned to their loss. I tried this program on a few of them, and it didn't seem to do anything. I checked the online help, and I'm really not sure how I should proceed with them, even after reading the help.

Still, seems like a very useful program and good luck to the developer; it's great when you see the software folks responding to the comments here.

I find it very upsetting, and odd at same time, that User Comments up top have more negative than positive votes, especially for a GOTD giveaway where the developer has been so upbeat, upfront, helpful and wanting feedback. Most developer's who offer GOTD giveaways sit back on their laurels and offer little help in here. (that's where the good "deal" samaritan's step up and offer help, and for that I am grateful)

M. H.,

"... but it's been ages since I had a damaged JPEG."

Yeah, I've been playing with graphics/images since before win 3.1, and can't really recall ever encountering one. Maybe we're lucky?

OTOH the app is tiny, & file recovery software can sometimes only bring back part of a file, so why not? Hopefully today is the only time I ever run the app, but who knows?

"JPG-Repair Toolkit 1.8.83"

With the Setup the actual program starts.
Yesterday there was a GOTD-program to recover files. The JPG are all damaged.
After 2 sec the screen looks different:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/vooup61ucof0q58/Testmap.png
I tried to load some JPG and got a warning. There should be a file sample.jpg, made with the same camera and the same conditions:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/bwmqy87vqti4u1s/EerstePoging.png
I do not have that file and rename some other damaged file to sample.jpg.
Loaded some files and the program did some work. Not the best, but that was expected, because there was no good sample.jpg.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/u6b08g5asoxnnq5/TweedePoging.png
The files, org and processed, are in this folder:

Tried it and uninstalled it!
Sorry to say because I always like to give a chance to a "young" developer.
It looks like that this app was designed from the DOS era. The GUI is not user-friendly. The Load... Save.... Open menu is simply... well, horrible!

Simply to get a picture from my picture folder took me a long time. The (very) tiny menu on the left pane is not adjustable.

And, yes, I did test it with a (known) corrupt JPG file. It didn't work! Period.

Uninstalled... sorry Joep you seem like a good guy from what I read here!

Reply   |   Comment by JimK  –  9 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

JimK, I get the impression this developer is not a "young" developer in as much as they are coding in native CPU language and not some pseudo compiled language like VB# or C# or Java etc and are not using some highly bloated 3rd party libraries to make a pretty GUI with megabytes of redundant code and data linked in.
The neater and tighter you code especially if you are coding in x86 assmebly language the less likely you are going to throw man hours developing a streamlined but visually exciting GUI... for less than a megabyte in program and data size it looks just fine to me. Not having any corrupted JPGs I wanted to repair that I had not already repaired sufficiently by other means I cannot vouch for its utility in that respect but since JPEG headers and data can get corrupted in so many different ways and the actual JPG data may not even exist within a JPG file to repair in the first place that you failing to get a single JPG repaired is not a damning indictment as this program is a tool not a garanteed 100% or your money back fix all broken files with JPG as file extension!

In general, is it possible to activate new updated version as well or just for a certain period or will it loose activation once updated?

i didn't like the interface. sample photo? portable? not intuitive at all. despite what a software does, the look and feel is a large challenge, and doesn't have much to do with what the soft actually does. much like going from dos to windows. this one could use a big makeover and eliminate the need for a sample. does it work? I cant tell.

This actually seems like a portable program:
1. Extract the zip to a folder (I recommend a parent folder in one of your hard drives, Drive C or D or whatever as it shouldn't *need* to be on the OS drive), run setup and allow Internet connection, then register it but copy and pasting the license into the box provided. Program ran automatically after that and was registered (for me anyways).
I saw no files created except the license file in the extracted folder so it remembers that it's registered.
The program *seems* to work on my old test OS (Windows XP SP3). I don't have a "corrupt" jpg to test it with though so I cannot comment on how well it works..
Anyways, putting it on a flash drive (with the license) would theoretically work as I saw no other files or registry entries created running it or registering it (except for the before-mentioned key file).
One caveat though I should mention is that Internet is REQUIRED! It will not even run if it can't phone home. Checking license perhaps? All I know is that when I prevented it from phoning home, it produced an error:
Run-time error '-2147012889 (80072ee7)':
The server name or address could not be resolved

So if you're like me and don't like letting programs phone home, you might want to pass on this one..
My 2 cents (and observations).

Also by default windows treats files with the word Setup in the file name as if they are installers so automatically demand elvated admin rights which are normally required for an installer... This file called setup.exe IS NOT an installer so should be renamed I suggest using the name JPGRepairToolkit1883-uc23wx.exe to tie it with this specific giveaway. Doing so will allow it to run as a user mode program and not an elevated installer. The developer needs to make this sneaky telemetary a procedure we have to optin to and not which is done on the quiet and in the case of the version they gave to GAOTD for this giveaway it must not be mandatory so the program fails to run if the internet is not made available to it!

If the developer produces a CLEAN executable that does not sneak out usage stats and refuse to operate unless it can it may be a a handy portable tool but as it is even if it allows operation offline but still tries to sneak usage statistics when it finds itself on an internet conected computer it is NOT the sort of program I want on any system of mine and I would not recommend it to anyone who cannot block outgoing internet connections from individual programs.
To the developer if you want usage statistics let the end user know explicitly that you want to gather them and assume the majority will prefer to not having their activity tracked so default to opt out! Demanding it without notification and without consent is unacceptable no matter how compact your program or potentially useful your program may be.

Joep, the version I just downloaded from your site did not FIX the undesirable design feature it still insists on making the unanounced google-analytics requests but this time apparently twice and produces a significant startup delay if it cannot get internet access to phone google and let them know all about the users use of your program in having google then touch your server for the transparent GIF you use to track users without our explicit consent. No doubt you can log into your account on google-analytics and gain various additional statistics.

Also included in that jpgrepair1892.zip archive is the executable "PhotoHeal.exe" why is that included in the ZIP file? also for your information on execution of PhotoHeal.exe it throws up an error alert "Unexpected Error"!

So you run it after registration from the same setup.exe!
Have to click on each jpg to select it. Cant select folder or multiple JPG's.
On first clicking REPAIR button it errors as it needs a sample good jpg!
Clicking OK or X will not exit the error box!!!
Have to click OK as many times as number of selected jpg's!!!
Screen is fixed size!

I cant do any more with this as its too annoying.

Let me know when its useable.

Hi Joep.

Thanks for this offering for my toolkit.

I always check, once downloaded to see if I have the latest update and note that this version is 1.8.83 yet the latest version on your site is showing
Version: 1.8.37
Published: January 11, 2019

That has confused me a little.
One would expect the later version to have a higher number?

Terry e, It's not that odd for us to be offered a version number higher than distributed via a contributers website publically it can happen for a couple of reasons. The main reason is we sometimes get used as unanounced free beta testing service by the contributor and they hope for us to reveal bugs in their upcoming beta/release and GAOTD is used because they do not have a fan base that is willing to act as willing beta testers and do not have professional in house alpha/beta testers and the other reason I can think of is the giveaway is a special build with a different licensing mechanisim or pre-activated and as such is not the identical version normally distributed by the contributer. This has happend in the past but is much more rare.

It stores it in the same folder as setup.exe.
Run setup.exe again and it goes to the program screen.

Jim Collins, extract the contents of the downloaded zip file to a seperate folder and read the readme.txt file, then rename the Setup.exe file to JPGRepair.exe then execute it ... if it throws an error it is still the old broken build the developer gave GAOTD in error hopefully the devloper will pass on a fixed version without the google telemetary bundled into it before the giveaway is over..
The program is a "portable" program it does NOT install into a system. Once you have input the license key it will create a licnese key named .key file to signal to the program it is registered.

I'm a little bit confused, running the setup.exe from the downloaded archive (622,663 bytes) just seems to run the program, rather than install anything. However it doesn't ask for the serial number.

Running the version from the web-site does ask for a serial number, and after that the "setup.exe" version also says it's registered.

I'm going to answer my own question. Setup.exe extracts the program as a temporary file and runs it, expecting it to be an .exe setup file. However it is just a program, not an installer, so the temporary .exe runs as the program. Nothing is installed. Presumably tomorrow setup.exe won't run and you'll only have access to the program if you copied it out of the temporary folder and renamed it. Although the licence does seem to work on the version from the website.

Joep, Thanks, now I just need a corrupted JPEG where the corruption isn't the bottom third of the data is missing :-)
Good luck with your software.

Joep, Please don't think I was being negative, I was just saying I couldn't immediately find a file to feed it...

Download and install fine. But does not work for me! Followed instructions and tried a renamed corrupt jpg picture. Called it sample file as suggested. Application simply sits after asked to "repair".

If I can not open a jpg because it says corrupted, then this software promises that it will probably repair it?
