Image created but not of supported file type

3 views (last 30 days)
I am encrypting an image and displaying the encrypted image and also saving it in the default directory with a .jpeg extension. It displays the image fine and even reads the image using imread() but if I try to open the file that got saved I get a message that the format is not supported. Why is this happening?

This means, that the default application to display JPEG files on your computer cannot handle Matlab's 'lossless' JPEG format. We do not know which application you have installed, but the solution is to use another one.
