Hello everybody

when I open a new image in adobe photoshop 2018. show error box with this message.

Could not place "my_image_name.jpg" because reading arithmetic coded jpeg files is not implemented.

please help me to resolve this problem.

IMG-20190105-WA0004.jpg

Something similar happens to me sometimes with files received from elsewhere. What I do is open in some other program... such as Windows Paint... and immediately save as a tiff file. (Usually opens in a program like that.) Then I place the 'new' version in Photoshop.

I resave as a tiff because jpg is lossy and this way I don't incur further loss on an already lossy file.

What have you done for trouble-shooting so far?

Restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be a good starting point:

What exactly do you mean by

when I open a new image in adobe photoshop 2018.

?

Are you creating a new image (if so: how exactly?) or opening an image?

Why are you still using Photoshop CC 2018?

Hi

Can you clarify what you are doing.

You say open a new image but it actually looks like you are trying to open an image file. It also looks like that particular file is corrupt.  Have you tried opening an alternative jpeg file that you have previously opened OK.

The file contains Arithmetic Coding instead of Huffman Coding (standard).

It seems Photoshop doesn't support Arithmetic Coding.

See for instance here:

Huffman and Arithmetic Coding

or something better.

One needs an appropriate file viewer.

I ran into the same error message and when I tried opening the .JPG in multiple applications (Preview on MacOS, various web browsers, Windows Paint, etc.), I tried opening it in Adobe Illustrator and I was able to view it. You just have to select the object and unembed the image, then save it in either .PSD or .TIF format.
