Are you trying to import the jpg as a new layer, or importing it to paint, or as a tracing overlay, or something else?
Can you tell me the size of the jpg image (width and height in pixels) you're trying to open?
Does ArtRage have a problem with other images, or just one particular image?
Are you running ArtRage on Windows, or MacOSX?
Which version of ArtRage are you using?
Thanks for any more information you can supply.
