First thing we need to know is what version of Mac OS is she using.
Also, you might be able to use something in the software that comes with
the digital camera she's using. Not knowing this info, I can't say for
sure. I'm not on a Mac here at work, but I have one at home. It's
possible that Preview, software that allows for viewing PDF files and
other file types, as well, and is included with Macs using Mac OS X,
might be able to do what you're talking about.

Subject: OT: free viewer/converter software for Mac
Not Frame related, but I thought some of the Mac users might be able to
help. My wife is a teacher and uses a Mac at school. She has bought an
educational program that imports digital images, but only as bmp files.
Because she wants to import photos taken on a digital camera, she needs
to convert them from jpg to bmp. Can anyone recommend some
freeware/shareware viewer/converter program that will allow her to do
this conversion on her Mac laptop. I know there are many programs like
this for a PC (XnView, IrfanView, etc), but I'm a bit lost in the Mac
world. I did find a Mac version of XnView, but it's a beta and doesn't
support file conversion yet.
