I came here from Google search. The post is old, but it's the newest one on the same subject, so I decided to add my 2 c.
I use Photo Editor almost exclusively for minor changes to the pictures. It (was ) the fastest and useful for what I do. Recently I got the same message. I Googled for help, came across some answers. I reinstalled PhotoEd, removed registry keys (a solution for not anough memory), still nothing.
Next, I followed the resaving of the file advice, and find out that the error shows only with pictures in landscape format. Portrait files opened OK. So, I rotated landscapes to portraits with Windows fax viewer, opened them with Photo Editor. It opened fine, so I rotated the file back to landscape, saved within PhotoEd, closed and opened again and got the same error.
Seems to me the suggestion that the camera is saving in some weird format (which I also found) is not right. If the file saved by PhotoEd cannot be opened by the software, there must be something preventing it.
My suspicion is on MS Publisher. I opened it shortly before and believe since then I've lost PE.
I run Registry Mechanic, but it shows no errors related to PE. Any suggestions?
