Basically this means that the code for dealling with the *.jpeg image format cannot be found.

If you are using gallery, then this is a known bug, and you'll probably need to downgrade IM:

Otherwise, you need to ensure that the following packages are instaleld on your system:

libjpeg-devel-6b-30
libjpeg-6b-30

(or equivalent). They should exist on your install disc, or you can apt-get/yum install depending on your distribution.
