Finding and Fixing Corrupted Images

Specifically JPEGs.

BadPeggy (the original site is down so I linked to a third-party site) can find the corrupted JPEGs. Usually, if IrfanView can open it (I haven’t had any trouble at all) you can crop out the corrupted part (on my images it tended to be near the bottom so it wasn’t like half a person’s face was cut off or something) and save it over.  However if it’s badly corrupted enough (IrfanView won’t open it or there’s too much data missing) this method doesn’t work too well and you’re better off just finding the picture again.

However, good backups should prevent the whole situation from happening in the first place 😉

A lot of fun!

This is an animation I made.

My new camera

It’s a FujiFilm FinePix S3000. Nice little camera, got it at a yard sale for $10. Although I had to pay $30 more for a card reader, still pretty cheap.

Couple of piccies I took with it.

Web Album Generator

If you’re lazy (like me), you can use this nice Web Album Generator to create a photo gallery for your website. I don’t have a website — except for my blog, of course — so I don’t particularly need it, but I have tested it and it’s nice.


The differences between the three and when to use what.

What is the difference between JPEG, GIF and PNG?
