Photo Attachment Names Quote | Reply

I uploaded a photo named "Featured Art.JPG" from my computer, and that name is converted to gobbeldy-gook for some reason, and the suffix is dropped. That suffix is used by computers to determine what type of file it is, and determines what software is launched to view it. Without the suffix, some people's computers apparently don't know what to do with the image. I've duplicated that same thing in this message so you can see what I'm talking about. "featured Art.JPG" becomes "phpXZ9Xyy", with no suffix to indicate what type of file it is...

So why do you strip off that necessary suffix on the name?

Somehow, when I double-click that photo attachment, it displays correctly on my browser. But that apparently isn't true for everyone, because some have complained.

Well this is curious. Meso's uploads retained the original name. Ski's uploads had the name converted to the gobbledegook style, but still retained the proper suffix. I don't know what the heck is going on... The problem may be on MY computer!

I just downloaded the file and added the suffixes, so its the same name as the one I downloaded.

What browser and OS are you using?

Try posting a different picture of the same type (jpeg, jpg, etc).

See if it does it again with a different picture. You can email the original picture to me (theonlyski at gmail) and I will try posting it to see if its you or the picture.
