Certain types of files will cause an error when attempting to preview them inline in Internet Explorer. The most likely cause of the error is because the image has a CMYK color profile rather than RGB. If you are using Internet Explorer, you cannot view CMYK images in the browser (this is a browser limitation). Previewing CMYK files in other browsers, such as Safari or Firefox, will work, but IE's rendering engine cannot display CMYK.
You may either use another browser to preview the file, or you may simply download the file to your computer and open it. There is nothing wrong with the file itself.
