Incorrect File Extensions on Images Saved From Scrapbook

About  

Previous Entry Incorrect File Extensions on Images Saved From Scrapbook Apr. 14th, 2005 @ 08:50 pm Next Entry
I have just discovered that when I right-click and save any of my image files stored on the Scrapbook site, they are saved as HTML files rather than as .jpg files. When I try to view the saved files from my image viewing application (Irfanview), it produces a notice that they are .jpg files with an incorrect file extension, and then it has to rename them before they can be displayed. This is not happening with image files I've saved from other sites. Is this a problem with Scrapbook, the fotobilder program, or some setting on my computer? I can't figure out if this is a bug, an intentional feature, or the result of something I'm doing wrong. I used to be able to save the files without this happening.

I'm using Opera 7.54. My new computer came with Netscape pre-installed, but it was slow and clunky, so I only used it a couple of times. It has IE, too, but I haven't even fired that one up.

That's your problem.

True. I only realized this after finding that I could save images from the site as .jpg files when using Firefox. Opera used to find the correct extensions when saving them, but some recent change in either Scrapbook or in Opera itself has created a conflict.

This is something with how your browser is saving the images. Images don't have any extension on the Scrapbook site, so it seems like your browser is assuming they're html and adding that extension. What you need to do then is when you save an image, manually add a .jpg to the end of the file name, or select the "jpeg" filetype in the saving dialog instead of "html".

Thanks. You were right. Apparently, it was Opera that was the source of the probblem. I just saved a couple of images using Firefox, and it correctly identified them as .jpg files. I had no idea that Opera was doing something like that. Most of the time it's a very good browser.
