Don't open large files using the image previewer supplied with Windows, it can't handle them. The software is optimised to show many files in a row (have you noticed how it can quickly open the 'next' image, while it takes a while to open the 'previous' image..?) and with very very large files like your 122 MB jpeg, it buckles under the pressure.

Use Photoshop etc.

Dear Jacobiskit, I don't know if you're familiar with the way experts-exchange works, but basically, once you are happy with an answer to your question, you should select it as your 'accepted answer'. That way your question moves out of the unanswered section to the answered section. Oh, and not to forget, the points you assigned to your question go the answerer who provieded you with your 'acccepted answer'. I hope I didn't repeat something you alredy knew!
