Hi,

I get the following error when I opened an image in windows photo viewer and make any change like rotating it.

Changes are not taking effect.

“Windows Photo Viewer can’t save the changes to this picture because there’s a problem with the picture’s file properties.”

Here is a screenshot of the error.

Please give me some explanation on this.
 
Thanks.

There might be multiple reasons associated with this error. Im going to list some possible issue resolvers which you can try to see if the issue resolves. Start trying from the first step and in case of failure move to the next one.

1. Copy your picture and save it some where else then apply this rotating function.

2. Rename file to something simpler like 1.jpg and then try

3. Try using  Windows Live Essentials: Photo Gallery and then rotate the file. If the software still doesn't lets you do this try using  Picasa this would surely help.

4. In case of failure of all previous steps try scanning your pc with your favorite antivirus.

Since Windows Photo Viewer reports a problem in the file as it can’t save any changes to the file when you try to rotate the image, check and verify that the file is not read-only. When a file is set to read-only, it is locked from any modification. You cannot make any changes to the file or to its contents.

To check the file, right-click the affected file and select “Properties.” In the properties window, in “General” tab, verify that “Read-only” is not checked at the bottom. If this option is checked, uncheck it then click “OK.” If this doesn’t help, try using the System File Checker utility. Press the Windows key then type without quotes “cmd” in the search field.

Right-click “cmd.exe” in the search results then select “Run as administrator” to launch an elevated command prompt. In the command prompt window, type the following command then hit Enter:

sfc /scannow

Insert your Windows installation CD or DVD when you are prompted then continue. Wait until the process is complete. When it is finished, close the command prompt then restart the computer.
