I forgot to mention that I'm using Adobe CS3 on a Mac, though that shouldn't be the issue because the JPEG also hangs Adobe Graphics Server which runs in a totally different environment.
Well, my NOD32 antivirus says it's okay.
I opened the file in my text editor's binary mode, and there's a "copyright (c) 1998 Hewlett-Packard Company" that I don't see anywhere in the file info in Photoshop ( screen capture). I wonder if the header is just messed up, somehow. Maybe missing some delimiters so some records are larger than expected. Can you re-save from the original?
I did a quick search for apps that would display the header info, and found a developer's demo code project, but I think it's just source code.
Sorry I'm not very helpful.
This may not be the response you want, but why not open it in a browser and do a print screen or use a screen grab utility and then re-create the jpg? Sorry about not resolving the problem and am hoping this is a workaround for you for now.
Really the problem has more to do with Adobe Graphics Server crashing when it encounters this image. I can open the file in Photoshop just fine and re-export it.
I was hoping to get help here because I wanted to know if anyone knew what kind of JPEG corruption or version issue would cause Adobe products like Fireworks to totally hang. It's understandable for corrupt files to be unopenable, but it's really bad if corrupt files bring down Fireworks and REALLY REALLY bad if they can bring down AGS and the public website that's connected to AGS.
Does anyone know what to look for when you're trying to figure out JPEG file or metadata corruption? Thanks for all the responses thus far.
Nathan - what program outputted the final jpg file?
Strange indeed, I just tried opening it in Fw CS3 and it cause it hang?
Ok I just noticed in the above hexview capture that it was created in Photoshop 3.
My Irfanview /Hexview also reveals this as well.
I opened it in Photoshop CS3 and resaved as a copy/version .jpg file and reviewed the Hexview in Irfanviw and it's marked with Photoshop CS3. I was then able to open the copy version in Fireworks no problem.
