The problem is corruption of the copyrights field. I just uploaded a couple
of pics to my work pc and couldn't even change the orientation using any of
the default MS photo editors. Same error on close couldn't save. When I
uploaded these same pics to another pc using same method, same security patch
levels no problems. Studied the files carefully so I found some strange
characters in the copyright field when you check properties>details tab>under
the origin header. go to the copyrights field remove the characters>apply and
close. You'll find you can edit the files without a problem.
