Microsoft Photo Editor, Clip Gallery 3.0, and Publisher 97 rely on external graphics filters when opening graphics files. If a graphics import filter is damaged or missing, these applications will not be able to insert that type of graphic. This article describes how to use the Office 97 Setup program to reinstall the .jpg graphics filter if it has become damaged.
You may still be able to insert .jpg files into Microsoft PowerPoint 97, Word 97, and Microsoft Excel 97 files, even if you are unable to insert them into Photo Editor, Clip Gallery, or Publisher 97 files. This is because PowerPoint 97, Word 97, and Microsoft Excel 97 can import .jpg files natively without a filter. However, Photo Editor, Clip Gallery, and Publisher 97 require Jpegim32.flt to read the JPEG File Interchange format.
