Wed, 21 Nov 2012 JPEG Repair for Mac review
Repair JPEGs with this easy to use app
- Manufacturer: Stellar Info
- Pros: Simple, easy to use interface, can extract thumbnails from images
- Cons: Limited to JPEGs, can’t find deleted files or corrupted ones missing headers, own Photo Recovery software is more useful, both packages should be combined as one, too expensive for just one function.
- Price: €31 (£25)
- Star rating:
If there’s one thing you never want to lose in the digital age, it’s your photos. Unfortunately hard drives, viruses, crashes and deleting images can all conspire together to take those images away from you.
The idea behind JPEG repair is to locate damaged JPEGs, repair the file structure and save the new version, leaving the original untouched. To this end it has a very simple interface with just two options: Repair JPEG or Extract Thumbnail for an image. The main option is Repair JPEG and this leads to a file browser whereby you can select the damaged files. It works as a batch process so multiple files can be selected. However, here’s where the fun starts.
