    Ok so Im obviously not hip to all this digi cam and photo processing mumbo jumbo, but im trying to learn so bare with me...

    anyway one day in one of my picture folders(one that was downloaded off of my camara from a SD card)out of (I think) now where there were several small unidentified files that say they are jpgs that almost look like a tiny piece of a picture but you cant tell what it is exactly, its hard to explain, but there are a lot of them. and they are in grayscale. for example some of them look like someones ear and another looks likes all white its just weird. I was thinking could be like one picture or even a movie that was converted or something and maybe my boyfriend tried to convert something and did it wrong i don't know. but does this sound familiar to anyone?
    I attached two out of many of the images... I don't know if that helps, but I just want to know what the heck these are!?!:confused::confused::confused:

    Welcome to the TSG Forum.

    Looks like something has destroyed the picture somewhere ???
    Boyfriend, Camera or Computer ??
    And it appears that you have attached Nothing .. That's been resized ??

    How do you mean 'destroyed'? You should really keep a backup of any photo's, maybe to an external drive, burn to DVD/CD, USB pen.

    as Noyb said, click on image info, and it shows ZERO bytes, so nothing is uploaded. Therefore hard to tell anything.
    What sizes do show in your picture folder that these pictures are? What program do you use to get them to the computer? Soem programs make smal thumbnails and still call it jpg and those tiny pictures do have weitd markings.

    I just run a test .. The Zero info is misleading (in Error) ... The original pixel size of the last upload is 34px × 61px.
    I don't think there is any fix ... The problem now is to find what/were went wrong and not do it again.

    What are you using to combine the images ?? .. or are they Thumbnails ??
