Error when opening JPEG image

Hi everyone,

I keep receiving this error when trying to open a particular JPEG image. All other images open fine, just this one doesn't work. Has anyone ever experienced this before and has found a solution? Any help would be appreciated.

Your image file is likely corrupt. Is the file size coherent with the other images? Can you post a URL to the image if it is available on the web?
Hi Ofnuts,

Thanks for the reply. Is there any way to fix it? URL is below:
My opinion, gone for ever. What you are seeing when trying to open the jpeg is an embedded thumbnail

opened in other grapics application

edit: Opened up the file in a binary editor, still a lot of information there, can it be recovered - doubtful.

edit 2: Running the downloaded file

through imagemagick -verbose and the properties (before lots of errors are reported )

Image: Moppity-Cato-La-Lucha-Tempranillo-NV.jpg
  Format: JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group JFIF format)
  Mime type: image/jpeg
  Class: DirectClass
  Geometry: 3818x7173+0+0
  Resolution: 300x300

Which is a large file, going to be bigger than 403528 B that I downloaded. Is that the size you were expecting?

This is the URL to a whole page, not to an image. If you want the barrels image, which is here:

It downloads/opens fine in Gimp (1600x1039px, 311112 bytes). Maye you just have to download again.
