    Why has JPEG format changed in recent versions of Photoshop?

    Mike Dallwitz

      I use an old program, created in December 2000, that displays images (as part of another process). Another user pointed out to me that when JPEG images are created by Photoshop CS6, the program can't display them (the message is 'Unknown image file format'). Images created by CS3 and CS4 are OK.

       

      JPEG files created by Zoner Photo Studio have the same problem. However, MS Paint, Windows 10 Snipping Tool, Snagit, and XnView produce files that are OK.

       

      I can work around the problem by converting the files in another program after editing them in Photoshop. But I wonder why the format produced by Photoshop has changed, and whether it can be configured to produce the old format.
