GIFs are widely used in our daily life. You can see GIFs on social media like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and more. GIFs often contain material from film and television media. But sometimes, you may encounter this situation - GIFs get damaged or corrupted. Here is an example:
"I'm trying to manipulate an image generated by the MapQuest traffic API. The image file that page generates appears to be corrupted (but not consistently). I can never edit it with ImageMagick, GIFLIB, PIL, or Photoshop."
Common Causes Of GIF Corruption
Before you are going to repair a GIF, you must learn about the reasons. Many times people are unable to access it because of various reasons:
- Corruption of image files
- Hard drive or driver failure
- Deletion of the GIF files
- Inappropriate operations
- Malware or virus attack
- Other unknown reasons
Now that you have learned the causes of a damaged GIF, you can fix and repair the GIF, or other JPG/JPEG files with these solutions below. Sometimes, a one-click restart can help you solve many problems. Before you are trying any other methods, try to restart your system first.
