What photo editor, and how large is the .jpg file you're trying to open?
Can you open up the image just with the default photo viewer inside the terminal server?

Sounds like the photo editor wont support the terminal services session you are in. What photo editor are you using?

I have had this problem once before with photo editor and they just used a different photo editor. Alot of people claim that its just a problem with the software and there is no fix.

I found a MS article for you here, this states that it is a file size and color depth issue:;en-us;211758

Try some other software such as:

Defiantly a problem with photo editor, If you look online, there are a lot of forums stating the same problem, and everyone agrees with the solution of using another photo editor.

I would suggest ifranview. Its lightweight and works very well
