Repair Corrupted jpeg files

Have a couple of hundred jpegs off wires phone, that don't have a preview on the icon of the file, and won't open in preview as it says its the wrong file type or corrupted. ,

Was going to launch an older version of Stellar jpeg repair utility, but won't run on Catalina, I downloaded the newest version. Is this App ok, to try and see if it will work.

Is it legit?

No.

Do a batch-conversion with GraphicConverter. It'll recover any image data in the files.

I downloaded GC, and installed. Quite a change in 15-20 years since last I used it. GC wouldn't open the file, said it was wrong format or damaged.

I coud see the size and date and time of its creation.

I did a search of FINDER, and saw 3 files with the exact same name IMG_0921.JPG the bad one's icon didn't show the picture, the other 2 did. Damaged file was 3.5 mb, the two with same time and date open and are fine, but are only 2 mb each.

Can I assume that this 2 mb file is the same as the damaged 3.5 mb file?, I see a lot of files with the same name as my wife and I take pictures through out the years

OH, and I just noticed that this folder of images, was offloaded from the iPhone, when they couldn't be opened on iPhone, using image capture.

It's possible that they are thumbnails or compressed versions of the damaged file. Hard to say. Check the creation/modification dates and see if they match or are close.
