Opening JPG-LARGE files

Did your computer fail to open a JPG-LARGE file? We explain what JPG-LARGE files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your JPG-LARGE files.

What is a JPG-LARGE file?

JPG-LARGE files are enlarged versions of JPG image files. Normally, these .jpg-large files are originally standard JPG files. These images are sometimes converted into the .jpg-large format after uploading these JPG images to online social networks like Facebook and Twitter, in which automatic image re-sizing takes place. This is in order to best match the required image dimensions of those social networks.To open a JPG-LARGE file using a standard image viewer or photo editing application, simply change the .jpg-large extension of the file into .jpg. This will enable your image viewer or photo editing program to recognize the file as an image in the standard JPG format.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
