    I've been having a real problem trying to upload jpegs/gifs to one site, though I have no problems with any of my other four Sites via Fetch, or a couple other places through a browser. Now the Webmaster of this site is telling me my jpegs & gifs are not jpegs & gifs, even though they've been created with Photoshop, made image-ready for the Web... and I have no problems anywhere else. She says I need to 'convert' them. I am claiming they need to make their site Mac friendly. If there is a way to 'convert' these images for PC, I'd really like to know... I need help in my arguments because my company is trying to work with hers and I don't want to cause bad feelings if I can help it... However, my company is firmly Mac based:)

    Thanks so much,
    Mac Webmaster in need

    :laugh: No, there is no "conversion" of those images for PC, considering 90% of the server market doesn't even use Windows.

    Upload one of these images so we can see what's going on. I'm thinking maybe they're in raw .psd format.

    if they are truly in jpeg and gif format then there should be no problem. they're probably not in the right format.

    Either that or they have sucky image viewing software on their end.

    Server might not recognize 4 letter extensions. Make sure you're using .jpg and not .jpeg

    Although it shouldn't matter.

    looks fine to me. maybe you are uploading them in the wrong mode. there is binary and ASCii mode i think. usually the mode is automatic. i forget which one images are supposed to be uploaded in, try both. ;)

    Images upload in binary, pretty much any FTP program recognizes the extensions and handles them accordingly. Fetch should do it, but if all else fails, use the OS X terminal.
