Also available for Windows:

Other tools only check meta data, this does both, image and the meta data.

This program will detect corrupt JPEG images. It will detect visually corrupt and meta data corrupt JPEG files and then provide the user with a set of actions. For the difference see below.

-- List of Functionality --
* Handle whatever you can throw at it, biggest batch so far 700 GB!
* Detect visually corrupt JPEGs (Images that will not display correctly)
* Detect meta corrupt JPEGs (Images that will display correctly but are incorrect)
* Scan recursively (Folders in folders etc ...)
* Produce a CSV (Comma Separated Value) file for logging or sorting in Excel
* Move the corrupt files (selectable by visually corrupt or meta)
* Delete the corrupt files (selectable by visually corrupt or meta)
* Full tooltips for ease of use
* Simple user interface
* Press space to preview the corrupt image
* Copy the corrupt file name
* Single delete of corrupt images from the list or batch move or delete actions

What’s New

Very useful - although it definitely needs:

1. Multithreading
2. The ability to edit the scan path directly
3. To remember last folder visited
4. Drag’n’drop scan select
5. A Reveal in Finder command
6. Ability to flag and remove files from results without deleting them

It’s just what I was looking for.

I’ve had some file system errors on mirrored external disks and was worried about internal damage to thousands of image files. Disk Warrior cleared up the file system errors (mostly Spotlight-generated files) but I couldn’t manage to compile some Public Domain command-line image validation tools I’d found.

Corrupt JPEG Checker has flagged lots of files I already knew were damaged (generated by a flakey Canon camera I used to use) and it appears to validate the image data from every file. Metadata errors don’t necessarily mean an image is affected but it’s sure nice to know.

Superb! Please write one for docs.

Provides an essential functionality that should not be needed, but dearly is. It is 2018 and we are still losing resources. The clouds don’t care. Neither does Apple.
