I think you mean jpeg files.

They can be opened using either the inbuilt XP "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" or any number of picture viewer programs. They normally open without difficulty.

To resave as a tif or gif then I suggest you use IrfanView. This is a good little viewer that will open about any picture file (including jpg & jpeg).

If there is some issue then we need more information.

Please come back and let us know the outcome.

lanhamwi, I agree with Derek, I use Irfanview (free @: http://www.irfanview.com) and love it. You can find a list of what opens what @: http://filext.com/

Are you absolutely certain it is jpge rather than jpeg?

Whatever, try renaming it to .jpg (just knock the "e" off).

Otherwise by all means send me one and I'll see what I can make of it. Don't put your email address on here tho or the spammers will find it. Send it as a personal message (in My Computing.Net).

Please come back and let us know the outcome.

No, I didn't mean you to send it via this website. I meant to go to "My Computing.Net" (your own place on here) and you can send me a Private Message with your email address. If you're not sure where it is, this should find it:
http://www.computing.net/cgi-bin/my...
It's not safe from spammers to just put an email address on a forum - the Private Message facility is secure.

To help start the ball rolling I'll send you a personal message with my address. You can then email me a jpge file as an attachment.

If you computer will open normal jpg files then there must be something peculiar about your jpge files. If you send me one I can see if there is any way it can be opened - I have several viewers on board. Jpge is a very unusual extension.

Please come back and let us know the outcome.

Just to update the forum, here is my reply to an email from the poster:

"What you have sent me is a docx file, which is an MS Word Processor document.
It has an image embedded (although this could just be an icon).

What I need is the actual picture file "Level1_1.jpge", or are you trying to open
the picture from within Word?"

OK, received jpge file now.

Nothing whatever will open it. I've tried a multitude of picture viewers, including IrfanView, which will often open files that nothing else can touch. In desperation I have tried renaming it to tif, gif, wmf, bmp, as well as things like zip, wmv and mp3 (just in case it is not a picture at all). I feel sure you will never open it. From what I can make of it jpge usually turns out to be a mis-spelling of jpeg, so that is another mystery.

It seems like it is corrupt. What are its origins - did it come via email? Maybe you can get it resent. Was it part of a document?

Please come back and let us know the outcome.

Ok Derek thanks for all your help. I guess I will not be about to open it at this time. I will keep looking for a program that will open the file. Have a great day.

Open it in a hex program, or even Notepad, just to view the "header" info. Within the first few characters, you should be able to determine nature of the format. That may point you in the right direction.

For example, a jpeg file might start like this:
ÿØÿà..JFIF......H (JFIF indicates a type of jpeg)
or
ÿØÿà..Exif......II* (Exif also indicates a jpeg, from a digital camera)

A gif file would start like this;
GIF89A...

Maybe you can Cut 'n Paste a few lines of that "gibberish" info here on your next reply.

When I got the file I did peer into it in NotePad.

I've just tried to paste the first few lines on here but only the very start comes up (same thing happens if I paste them into a new empty NotePad screen). Here it is:

þÙþáKGHG

It doesn't follow either of the patterns you suggested. I still think it is a corrupted file.

Please come back and let us know the outcome.
