Sometimes users get the problem “parsing jpeg data error message” while they try to open an image file through applications like Photoshop. This issue mainly occurs when a user tries to open a corrupted JPG or JPEG file in the Photoshop. Those images might be corrupted because of an incomplete download of the image raw data. If you are also going through a similar situation, here we have an easy workaround for you. But before proceeding with this process, make sure that you are able to open the file in Windows Image Viewer. If you find difficulty in opening the image there also, then the below process will not work for you.
The first step in the process is to open the suspected file in Paint. For this, right click on the file and select the "Open With" option. Now open it with the Paint application on your computer. As said earlier, if the issue is with the raw data only, then you will be able to open it in Paint. If you are succeeded up to this step, then you are just a step away from solving the Problem Parsing JPEG Data issue. Now save this file that you have opened in the Paint as a new image file on your computer. Then try to open the newly created image file using Photoshop. This time you will be able to open the file without the error message and that solves your problem. You can follow this step for as much of files as you like because this is a very simple process and does not require too much effort to get back the files that are suspected of gone forever.
