I was just emailed a jpeg with no background. No program could open it. I tried photoshop and a bunch of image viewers. Nothing worked. What is this sorcery!

Edit: Yet windows showed the preview in file explorer. So I tried the photos app and it worked. Now I have more questions than before. Wtf

    @crapped Is this potentially some riddle or something?

    Upload to an image bin or Google Photos and see if that brings anything up

    Sure it's actually a jpg? RAW file formats based on TIFF, for example, may contain a jpeg as a preview, and that is followed by the actual image data.

    @theNSA no, it literally was a feather. The client wanted me to add it to the database. It was saved as a jpeg but had no background. Sorcery!

    How did you created the file?

    Afaik JPEG format does not support transparency/no background.

    btw My first attempt would be to open it in the Irfan view.
