I just got a job in for some packaging using jfif files in the layout. Anybody with any experience with jfif? 35 years in the biz and this is a new one on me.

Oddly Photoshop is not listed at the bottom of the page as a way to open them...
I mean really? That was what Pshop was invented for is opening oddball crap!
Curious if you can...

Image that - a format old enough to be replaced by jpeg!
God I hate prepress somedays. The layout also has png files for printing seps.
Give me a Publisher file again! At least those usually gave expected crappy results.

JFIF - JPEG File Interchange Format



Format introduction:

The JPEG File Interchange Format (JFIF) is an image file format standard. It is a format for exchanging JPEG encoded files compliant with the JPEG Interchange Format (JIF) standard. It solves some of JIF's limitations in regard to simple JPEG encoded file interchange. As with all JIF compliant files, image data in JFIF files is compressed using the techniques in the JPEG standard, hence JFIF is sometimes referred to as "JPEG/JFIF".

Technical details:

JFIF defines a number of details that are left unspecified by the JPEG Part 1 standard. For example: The JPEG standard does not include any method of coding the resolution or aspect ratio of an image. JFIF provides resolution or aspect ratio information using an application segment extension to JPEG.

Oh, come on. You all know it can be opened by PowerPoint.

If you change the extension to .tif then Photoshop will recognize it and open them. Or maybe it's .jpg - I don't remember which works but I've had them come in a few times and did one or the other.
