Can anyone suggest a way to e-mail a Photoshop PSD document with the layers. It is being sent from a newer Mac (not sure of OS) to a PC using XP. The recipient uses Photoshop CS2.

The first time we tried to send it as an attachment the PC user could not open the file as it said it was an "application/octet-stream"?? The next time the Mac user sent it as part of the actual e-mail without attaching it, the PC received it as an outline of an empty box with a broken link icon in the upper left corner.

Can anyone tell me how to resolve this problem? The file only has a few layers if that matters.

Thank you,

lgd

You could try saving it as a layered tiff file, that will save any layers and even effects layers
