    In my case the picture was not corrupted because it could be displayed by other photo viewers plus the same happened with other pictures. And right, this is the Paris Opera.

    I'm not sure this will work, but I was having issues with pictures not showing in the Metro app icon and I fixed it by using file explorer to go to the folders where the photos were stored and then first removing them from my library and then adding them back again.

    Excellent goût. Mes compliments. Je suis un francophile.

    Then let's work this out. Work with me. What else do we have to do except find the facts and remedy problems.

    There are others watching and wanting.

    Explanations welcome !

    Can you post that picture so that we can further make efforts to remedy ?

    Je touche Windows 8 rarement. Ce n'est pas un systeme qui me plait beaucoup. Je prefere travailler sur mon Linux Mint. Laisse tomber, ca ne vaux pas le coup.

    There was no solution. I did not persue it. That picture viewer is as useless as the whole Windows 8.

    Thanks for your continuing interest. Unfortunately the hour is late here in the USA EST eastern time 5 hours from Grenwich.

    But I'll get back into it tomorrow!

    Goodday friends. The continuing saga.

    There are some contingencies and suppositions here:

    * The originator of the thread dropped out. So this is for those remaining.

    * The original photo of the Paris Opera was a Siamese to the adjacent blank.

    * The visible photo was not a photo taken by the poster with a digital camera and then was imported. Instead it was, and is, a download from a website.

    * There is a little bit of unexplained circumstance with the website vis-a-vis the photo. In one place I am seeing 36 photos for desk top wall paper. In another 14 photos, slide show. So I'm not certain that the Paris Opera photo that I found came from the posters website.

    * The 14 photo slide show theme is of various structures/buildings that are unique, historic and from numerous countries.

    * The quick flash pop up that I got saying; "You now have new apps to open this file" now comes regularly. It may have an either or meaning. a) It is saying that the photos are for a Windows 7 application and I have Windows 8. b) It may mean the I received updates since I bought my computer and now these new apps have been added.

    During my experimentations with the Paris Opera photo and adjacent blank, I did save the photo from the website and sometimes it was actually two of the same side by side. Other times it was only the photo. My monitor is 20 inches and that permits side by side viewing.

    Upon viewing the 14 photo slide show I noted that the various photos have different names and there are instances where two photos, that are different, have the same name. However, all photos on the website occupy the left half of the screen and the right half is a black background with text that gives data on the photo.

    * One supposition is that in this case the blank portion may not be a photo at all but rather the adjacent text that accompanies each other photo. It simply may not have reproduced: a) because it was for Windows 7 and for unexplained reasons didn't copy to Windows 8: b) It could be some form of corruption. But the poster said it was actually a photo that he opened elsewhere using different methods. In any event I had no problem saving, opening and viewing any of the photos from the website using my Windows 8 Pro on my new HP computer.

    I can't speak to the other inquirers problems because they didn't give any information.

    Here's the photo I found that could possibly be the blank shown above.

    Update:

    Tried to import the Paris Opera photo with blank into Snapfish, the HP photo hosting website.

    The file could not be opened because it is either corrupted or an invalid file format.



    Uploaded this to Snapfish, from the same website and it works just fine, no problems.





    Found the problem !

    I Google'd the Paris Opera photo and opened other websites. The site that I initially used saved the photo in .peg And I couldn't find it in my pictures library to upload into Snapfish.

    So I found the series in other websites and it saved in .JPG !

    So the problem was actually in the websites and how the picture was being saved.

    The two above photos did appear in my Library and did successfully upload to Snapfish where I copied and passed into the forum.
