I went to open up some files tonight and it reminded me of this error I uncovered a while ago. When I was doing a little clean up on some post-Hurricane Irene images, I added my signature watermark, and re-saved the file as a jpeg. I neglected to flatten the image though, so I ended up with huge files... 80MB or so.
So tonight, I thought I would open them up, flatten the layers, and get the file size down to something manageable. However, when I try to open the file in Elements or Photoshop I get this error: "Could not complete your request because an unknown or invalid JPEG marker type is found."
They open fine in "Preview" on my Macbook.
Does anyone have any bright ideas? It's not a huge deal as I still have my originals, but it would save about 4,000 hours of "despeckling"!
Thanks in advance
