I was editing images in Lightroom 5, just applying "blue" labels to images I wanted to look at again. Then on one image I did some color and tone corrections. Then when I went to open that image in PS I got an error message saying Unexpected end-of-file. The other images which had no color or tone corrections do not have this problem and open fine.
I downloaded a trial of capture one, and it is not able to open or convert it either.
I know this pops up from time to time but not much with DNG, as I saw it listed in a few forums, but none really seem to answer if it is fixable. I looked at the files in iHex-hex editor as one forum briefly mentioned that, but even comparing it to other files that are working fine I don't know what I am looking at with that.
I don't have a backup of this image, so recovery is my only option...that is if it is an option.
The images are stored on a Drobo. I had LR set to save metadata changes to the files automatically. Camera was Leica M240, but I think this error happened while editing in LR, as I was able to generate a 1:1 preview before I started editing.
Do you know if it is fixable? And if so how?
Thanks in advance
I'm not one of these guys that knows how to tear down a file and modify it. If it will display in Lightroom, can you export it as a TIF image and then open that in Photoshop?
I believe the only reason it is displaying in LR is because I had already generated a 1:1 preview of it before I did the editing that I think created the issue. I have tried every export option I know in LR, and all produce the same error
