I had no problem with that image displaying in IrfanView, GIMP or Windows Picture Viewer. I suspect it may not be a problem with the image itself. What is the associated program that File Manager is trying to open it with? Is the file already open? Is it read-only? Are you able to copy the image to a directory other than "C:\Documents and Settings\Ábel\My Documents\My Pictures\2009-04-25\Esküvo\" and open it from there? -- Bob Long _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimp-user@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
