When trying to import images I receive the error message: The file cannot be opened because of a header error
- I´m using PrPro CS5
- Import file format .jpg
I have upgraded to CS5 from CS4, converted the sequence. It worked just fine in CS4.
Can anyone help?
Thank you for your reply.
Unfortunately, I get a similar issue when trying to open the image with photoshop, that is, it won´t open stating that the jpg has an unknown marker?
Thanks for your help!
Thanks again I much appreciate your help. I have just found the original eps file and will see if I can re-save it from that again. Should I have problems, I will reopen this question.
What if it opens in Photoshop without any issues but won't open in Premiere and still returns the "...header error" message, even after re-saving from Photoshop? This is in reference to importing a .jpg file in Premiere Pro CS6.
Another option to the PNG, that Jim mentioned, would be to Save_As PSD, and Import that.
Even PS is very sensitive to poorly formed JPEG headers. Other programs, like the free IrfanView, not so much. When I encounter JPEG issues, I just attempt to Open in IrfanView, or another such program, then Save_As JPEG, at the highest level (lowest level of compression). To date, if the JPEG will Open in the other program, the Save_As has gotten me a file, that PS will Open just fine.
Welp, saving as a PNG worked but I forgot that I originally created the file at 320x240 when I was working in Windows Movie Maker. So it's too small for my 1440x1080 sequence and I now have to recreate it. Facepalm! Thanks anyway!
I had the same issue today. Figured it had to be something else. Checked the image in Photoshop. Goto IMAGE, MODE and see if it's CMYK Color. Change it to RGB color and save. That fixed it for me (saving it as jpg still).
