Does it look okay when you look at it directly on your PC?  (Before uploading
to a website...)

You didn't happen to upload it as ASCII, did you? :)

If you're having problems loading it _on_ your PC (e.g., save it in Gimp,
and then when you load it it looks corrupted), then perhaps there's a
problem with your JPEG library or with The Gimp itself.

Good luck!
