Differences between JPG files, what to do?

Post by magnets »

I have a 127,512 byte file produced by my PHP application using the Magickwand PHP package. When I open the file with MS Paint it looks fine. I can immediately save it in MS Paint and the size becomes 134,796 bytes. No problem.

But when I try to use the 127,512 byte file with a MS Visual Studio based package the application GUI blows up and dumps a stack. When I use the 134,796 byte file it works perfectly fine. Big Problem.

The file size difference is of no concern. The concern is that I need my application to produce a usable file without the need to to use MS Paint or any other special tool.

Is anyone aware of this issue? Any suggestions?

It might help if you provide your IM version and OS/platform and also your exact command and the input and output images from your code.
