Jpeg? HTML? What's changed?
« on: March 03, 2013, 08:59:29 AM »
I regularly take photographs for hubby, and in order not to have to faff around with memory sticks etc, I email them to him. (Gmail)
He then downloads them on our 'main pc' which is connected to our printer, so he can print them off.

However, I sent two shots yesterday that. when you click 'save as,' have an enormous 'code' and no mention of Jpeg. In the box 'Save as type' it says 'All files' which you can't change to 'Jpeg.'  They don't show in the folder where they should be kept with the other associated (jpeg) pictures, and cannot be printed.

When I try to save it from the 'View' position, it comes up as: Web archive single file (*.mht). I've got three other choices (txt HTML etc) but not Jpeg.

Has anyone an idea what's going on? Did I do something wrong? And how can I correct it?

These are the first shots I've sent using my new laptop (Windows8) and I also used Elements 11, while in the past, I used a different editing programme.
Can that have anything to do with it?

I googled .mht and came up with this page:

http://filext.com/file-extension/MHT

It suggests to me that the most likely cause is a virus on one of your PCs, though there are other possible reasons.

Good luck with fixing it.

Are you sending them as a PSD file instead of a jpeg?  Just wondering as you say you edited them in Elephants 11.  ;) If elements isn't installed on the laptop  you sent it to, then it won't be able to open them.  So make sure you save them as jpeg in elements before you send them.

Sounds like a jumbo problem!  :doh:

I think Mick is correct, as the files have been changed into mhtml extension, as they can't be read by your internet software. Might be able to convert to HTML and then to Jpeg but not sure.  :o

Thank you all.

I have sent them as Jpeg files. Previously I used E8 for editing and ACDsee for filing/archiving.
None of these programmes is installed on our main pc. But that was never a problem.

In the past, when you clicked 'Download,' a long, narrow, rectangular, yellow edged, window used to appear at the bottom of the screen and here you could click 'open, save, or save as.'
The 'save as' always did the trick, and you could choose what folder to save it in etc.
(It is still like this on my laptop.)

On the 'main pc' this window does not appear anymore, but I get a larger, square Internet Explorer window which supposedly, lets me do the same things, but it doesn't work.
When I click 'Save as' in that window, I'm away to the races, with the problem as described earlier.

The main pc runs Windows Vista and (I think) IE9, is regularly scanned with AVG (paid for) anti virus software and also has up to date Zone Alarm.

Guessing it has something to do with IE9, I accessed the email through GoogleChrome, downloaded both pictures to the desktop and dragged them to the right folder. So they are now where they should be, but it is quite a palaver to get them there!

If anyone can tell me how the 'yellow edged' choice box disappeared, and more importantly, how I can get it back, I think the problem would be solved and I'd be eternally (well ... almost) grateful!

Hmm, might be something changed with your email service provider.  Or a windows update has changed something.  ???

You know you could always set up Dropbox on both your machines.  https://www.dropbox.com/

This will add a folder to the desktop of each PC, if you drag the files to that folder on your laptop, then they will be available on the other PC in the same folder.  And vice versa.

Thanks Mick. I've heard of Dropbox, but never knew how it worked. Seems simple and straight forward.
I'll look into it and see if hubby wants to join.

No problem. https://www.dropbox.com/tour  ;)

Thanks again Mick. Going to have a look at it now.

See y'all later.

As you already have gmail you might also check out Google Drive which seems to do the same thing as Dropbox and also works on Android tablets.

 :hmm:  Reinardina seems to have gone quiet all of a sudden, hope my advice didn't cause a problem.

Sorry Mick. We have started the process; hubby has read the instructions and downloaded it on the main pc. There is however, no desktop icon, and he has to access it by going to the website. Any idea how to get the icon?
I haven't done anything on my laptop yet, as there are, at the moment, no pictures to share.

Use the create shortcut option and asign it an Icon from the list. If unsure type shortcut into the help screen.  :tup:
