Corrupt photo downloads

We've recently detected corrupt jpeg image files being downloaded when using the AddAllObjects() method of libRETS on some MLS boards common to this vendor and were wondering if there had been any recent updates to the way photos are processed on the back-end.

For example, With the South Wisconsin MLS we attempted to download images for MLS# 1713137. All images except the last downloaded correctly, but image #7 (starting from 0) was detected as corrupt and when viewed in an image viewer appeared to be missing part of the image. This seemed to occur when attempted to download images at 00:12 am MDT as well as when we tried again at 01:30 am MDT. As of 13:57 MDT this image still appears to be corrupt on download. Would it be possible to take a look at this listing in the back-end system to verify if the 7th image is corrupt or not?

Here's an example of the corruption we're seeing:

Thanks in advance

What RETS URL are you using and account name? NO Passwords. Also how are you downloading them? As binary or location using getobject or from the URL in the Media resource?

I show 22 images for that listing and it looks like the partial one you displayed is the 3rd one in the set. It is possible that maybe the image set was being modified when your pull happened or something. But all of them look correct now?
