Stellar Data Recovery has revved Stellar Phoenix JPEG Repair, an app for repairing damaged JPEG/JPG image files, to version 2.0. The new version is faster and sports some user interface tweaks.
The new version has a scanning and recovery engine that is up to 30% faster than the previous version and has a better user experience, says Sunil Chandna, CEO of Stellar Data Recovery. This new version is also more functional and capable of extracting thumbnails from completely unusable or corrupt JPEG files, he adds. The file repair process is completely automated now and is able to provide a distinction between thumbnails and repaired images.
A free version of the software can be downloaded from http://www.stellarinfo.com/mac-software/jpeg-repair-mac.php. A full version of Phoenix JPEG Repair is available for US $39.
