You can try this - I don't have a bad image to work with but try it anyway with one of yours. If it will process the image AT ALL it should correct the marker segment in the converted [output] image:

Go to: http://www.fileformat.info/index.htm

In the upper right menu = Image Conversions - select/click: Common

Enter image location in the browse bar

Select: convert the image [do this one at a time] from "[original format]" to "jpg" [or "tif"] and then tic "download." Then click "save."

You will be prompted where to save. Try one and save it to the desktop (or some place easy to find the resulting file) and it will have the name "output.***" where "***" is the file extention you selected to convert to (jpg or tif).

Then... see if you can open it normally via Windows; an image browser; or PS-CS

I don't guarantee it will work but it's worth a try.

Hunter
