While the PhotoJazz plug-in is decompressing (opening) a PhotoJazz image, Illustrator displays a wait cursor (a spinning watch or an hourglass), or, for very large images, a progress indicator. During this time, you can cancel the Open operation on a Macintosh at any time by pressing Command+Period. Note that Illustrator does not support progressive display during file opening. Illustrator buffers up the entire decompressed image before displaying any of it, and from then on always displays the image from its own cache, permitting much faster redisplay.

If the PhotoJazz image file has been corrupted, whether due to storage medium failure or transmission errors, the data integrity verification feature of the PhotoJazz plug-in will tell you as soon as it detects evidence of corruption.
