Sorry i should have been more specific.. (and i know its not Gimp specific, just a fellow photographer looking to help a friend)

I have some pictures taken on an Sony DSC-W510 digital camera, and they are/have become corrupted? the thumbnail shows up, in windows(win7) & osx(10.6), debian 7.2 must be different as it shows the corruption up in thumbnail preview, but when viewing the full picture, it only shows up a corrupted view and this seems to be about 5 to 10 percent of the image coming down.

The Exif data seems to be all present (all 3 os's), and the programs that i have tried, inc gimp/picasa/CS6 photoshop/serif photoplus, all have a corrupted image.

I have tried stella recovery, jpeg doctor, hetman photo, jpegrec, jpeg-repair (im sure there was more)... and was just looking for somone who might have some knownlege.

i have even downloaded an Hex editor, and well, started to look through the information, but it looks like a large amount of information to go through..

Ill try your suggestion Elle, just seen your email come through, i have debian powered up at the moment, so ill give it ago :)

Developing GIMP is a Hobby, not a Job.

Whether a job or a hobby, prioritizing effectively is probably *MOST* important.

In this regard, voluminous postings that are distracting and *UNNECESSARY* is *ALWAYS* counterproductive.

Any posting that starts "I understand that the developers are ---" is counterproductive.

The notion that the marvelously effective GIMP developers were unaware of the discomfort this UI change would produce was gainsaid in earlier postings in this and related threads; I would encourage all those who are fans of GIMP and would like to have the ever-changing developer group get on with their priorities: please back off and let them be. I *WANT* CMYK; I *WANT* high-bit-depth; I *WANT* more robust undo history; I *WANT* more intuitive UI; I *WANT* a smoother work flow; I *WANT* - - -

I will not mention what my priorities are, but I can understand that the large community of users is likely to have a large number of subgroups each of which would agree on a profoundly different set of priorities than many of the other subgroups.

I am reminded of a comedian's remark some decades ago: "I wish those people who can't communicate would SHUT UP ABOUT IT."

PS - I apologize for distracting any members of the worldwide GIMP community who dislike being bothered by threads like these - please forgive.
