    For some reason or another, Photopaint is apparently displaying the
    embedded EXIF thumbnail instead of the actual image. EXIF thumbnails, as
    created by modern digital still cameras, typically have a resolution of
    160×120 pixels. (If that's so, it's bit curious situation though. If
    PhotoPaint cannot properly handle images with EXIF thumbnails, you're
    going to have similar problems with just about all images taken with
    digital still cameras.)

    Try opening the problematic JPEG image in Exifer and see if it has an
    EXIF thumbnail in addition to the actual image:
    <http://www.friedemann-schmidt.com/software/exifer/>. If it does, you
    could try making a backup copy and removing the thumbnail. This can be
    done either in Exifer itself, or with a tool called "jhead"
    <http://www.sentex.net/~mwandel/jhead/>, or with some similar utility.
    After having done that, maybe the load actual image will load in
    PhotoPaint. Worth trying, anyway.
