I have some image files for which the extension may have been written
incorrectly, i.e. they say .jpg but i suspect they are really png's. Can GIMP
tell me the file type of a file it has opened. I know it examines the magic
numbers to determine how to handle it so it must know. How can I make it tell
Or if you know of an easy way to determine file type, without relying on the
extension, from a non GIMP technique or tool.
In addition to the other suggestions, if you're on Windows you can open
the file with IrfanView. If the file type doesn't match the extension,
it will give a warning and optionally change the file extension.
