    Will it open in any other application (eg. web browser, Windows image viewer...)? Perhaps the file got corrupted.

    Hard to say, then. Maybe you could try to use the print screen button to copy and paste a shot of it in Photoshop, if that's sufficinet for your purposes?

    Try re-downloading the JPG. Maybe it didn't download completely. Commented Apr 28, 2014 at 14:25

    What worked for me was to open the image in a web browser (I used Chrome), then right click and choose Copy Image. Then paste into Photoshop.

when you look at the file in your windows (or mac) explorer, can you see an associated icon with the file? If it appears as a blank page there might be a possibility that the image extension was not appended to the end of the file name. I have had this difficulty with programs in the past.

If it is a "blank" page like the above icon (2014_C) you can try and rename the file and add ".jpg" at the end of the file. This won't necessarily fix it 100%...you may still have a bad download, but at least this is one way to try and make sure the file is associated with a program.

Non-associated files will open in some programs, but not always. Just a suggestion to look for.

I was facing the same problem.

  1. Close Photoshop
  2. Refresh the screen
  3. Open the folder where the file is
  4. Point the file, right click and - Open with - Photoshop

It's open. Done.
