Solved Can't view JPG file on MAC

June 15, 2010 at 06:10:23
Specs: OS X 10.6.2
I am unable to view a series of .jpg files. They show on
the file icon and in the e-mail they came in, but when I
click on them they are blank. I've tried repairing
permissions and that doesn't see to work.

✔ Best Answer
Just a hunch. Add .jpg or .jpeg to the end of the files names. Maybe they come from a source that did not added the file format and Preview on OSX can recognize them. It happens with all kind of files on Macs that comes from not recognized origins.

The Finder will ask you something like "Would you like to Add the JPG file extension to this file", choose Add.

Also you could select the file and choose "get info" and expand "Name & Extension". It should have a file format if not add one.

I would try dragging and dropping the files on the Preview
application icon or control-clicking or right-clicking and
choosing Open With... and choose Preview.

Ok, but if you try to add the extension the finder may ask to link
all those files (the file creator) to open with a specific app. Also
sometimes drag and drop and open with doesn't work.
