Open jpg files on mac

Or maybe you want Pixelmator to be that go-to app. Fortunately, you can easily change the default image viewer on your Mac. This is how to do just that.

Under the Open With dropdown menu, select the application you want to use as default. Assuming you want to apply the change to all similar file types, click Change All to open all documents like this one with the selected application in the future. You can just as easily revert back to Preview should you want to by simply following the steps above again.

The steps describe above work for any kind of files and applications. In order to find the problem, I uploaded the file to this online JPEG image optimizer and tried to optimize it without compression:. JPEG specification states that these 2 bytes are responsible for storing the size of a thumbnail.

And it is my guess that Mac OS is sensitive to this, so even if there is no thumbnail embedded into the file, these 2 bytes should be present anyway, despite the fact that they will simply store nulls. And I want to highlight again: this method only fixes this particular issue - the missing size bytes of an absent thumbnail. If in your case it is something else, then you can try to optimize your picture using the online tool I referenced earlier and then compare the fixed result with the original file.
