LiveCycle Designer: XFAImageService error importing a Photoshop JPG into an XFA form


 If you are trying to import JPEG images produced with Adobe Photoshop into an XFA-based form in LiveCycle Designer, then you may notice the following error in the warning palette:

Error reading JPeg file : JFIF supports only 1 and 3 component streams. 

XFAImageService: Image cannot be resolved for node: StaticImage1


 1. Use Photoshop version 6 or less to produce the JPEG images

2. Re-save the JPEG images from Photoshop using the “Save for Web…” option in the File menu

3. Re-save the JPEG images using Paint in windows, or any other image editing tool which does not add the preview information described below

Additional information

 This error occurs when Photoshop 7 or greater was used to create the JPEG images.  This is due to a change in the JPEG format produced with Photoshop 7 and greater, which now includes a thumbnail preview of the JPEG image included in the JPEG profile.  Such profile information does conform to the JPEG/JFIF specification, however some applications like web browsers, or in this case, LiveCycle Designer cannot handle the preview data correctly.
