This is a little late, but GraphicConverter has option to save as a
Progressive JPEG, the only thing is some PC people can't read this kind of
JPEG file even if you have named it something like mypic.jpg :-}


I know this because my girl friendf uses a PC and that is how I found out
about that she couldn't view a JPEG in the Progressive format.

The Solution is to do a Save As and make sure that you uncheck Progressive
checkbox, you should find it in the Prefs or in the Save Dialog there is a
Options button that you can click. Then send it again making sure that you
have .jpg at the end of the name. :-}

Re: E Mail question

2003-01-07 Thread otto hansen
thats rather odd, windows should be able to open progressive jpegs just fine
out of the box, however sending AOL instant messanger cant handle the
pictures unless they are first saved from the IM window and then opened and
since AOL email can open them just fine, I find that a little odd (AIM tends
to have more features for free than AOL users are paying for)

since you are emailing hte pictures you might as well not use p-scan (see if
that solves the problem) because it would make the file size a little bit
larger (a little little bit) and could make your saving/processing time
longer.  You dont really need it because with email they will probobaly have
the whole picture downloaded before they view it and you dont need the low
quality scans that p-scan jpegs create for the sake of people with slow
internet connections

I think this is because ColorIt uses/needs QuickTime, which may not 
be installed on yr friends' PCs... They need it in order to view the 
'QuickTime JPEGs' that ColorIt saves jpegs as...

Thanks

I've never thought of that. I use an old LC 580, but it gives me a lot less 
headaches than my Windows using friends who have the latest and greatest. And 
the best part of it is these old Macs are built like a tank. I have three 
kids who can't break it. And they are masters at breaking things let me tell 
you.

Thanks again


Scott

I was having problem sending some pictures also, but when I cut down the 
resolution some, they were able to get through.  I was using Photoshop to 
edit the pictures.

 AOL's E mail program reads them fine.

When sending attachments to PC owning friends, from a Mac, I stick 
to the DOS Filename convention of eight DOT three.
For example; FILENAME.JPG

Even after years of Windows long filenames, I still find sticking to the 
old DOS file naming scheme to be the most reliable for (successful) 
cross platform transfers.

That is: You can use any combination of letters and numbers in a file's 
name (no spaces, use an underscore if need be), up to, can be less 
than eight characters but no more than eight, followed by a period . 
then a three letter suffix (some file types have less than 3 but usually 
it's three).

It's the suffix that will give the receiving PC the information it needs to 
find the correct program to deal with the file. Yes they are that dumb.

Some safe image file formats for sending to a Win PC from a Mac:
JPEG:   filename.jpg
GIFF:   filename.gif
TIFF:   filename.tif
PICT:   filename.pct
Many Windows programs can open Macintosh PICT files, but it's 
probably safer to stick to the more common JPEG of TIFF (JPEG's 
compressed file size makes it the image format of choice, for sending 
via email).

Mike.
