Thread: Email converting jpgs to Php's
09-19-2006, 09:02 PM #1neen273GuestEmail converting jpgs to Php's
Hi, new here.
I'm a photo retoucher. I sent my photographer client finished work through the website Yousendit.com. This *almost* works fabulously. He receives notices that files are available for downloading through his Mac email. The problem is, when he downloads them, they are somehow converted from the jpgs I originally sent to .php files. I'm guessing that it is the email system that is responsible.
Does anyone know why this is happening and how to correct it?
Thank you so much,

Something strange is happening. You can't convert JPG files to PHP files. Have you tried sending yourself some files to try and see if you are having the same issues as your client? I just sent myself some jpg's with that service without any problems.

Somehow it is happening though. I don't have any problems. I am on a PC but I have another client who is on a Mac and he isn't having this problem receiving my files.
Robert can convert the php's to jpg's in Photoshop on his Mac, he just shouldn't have to. He sent one of the php files back to me, and I couldn't open it at all on my PC.

What do the file properties say about the file contents? The problem, as others have said, is that PHP and JPG are fundamentally different - one is an HTML wrapper programming language and one is an image format. Photoshop must be recognising the image as something else, presumably whatever the web server is converting them to.
