In what format has the picture been sent. In other words what is the file type?.

From a message I received from ukg it seems that the picture file is in PhotoDraw Mix File Format. The same format was also used by the earlier MS Picture-It.

You can read more about this Microsoft specific format here, and suggestions as to how to get round the problem of viewing it. Good luck, and in future ask that pictures be sent to you in jpg format. This would not present any difficulty to the sender and make things easier for you.

I have received a message from ukg to say that following the suggestions given, he was successful in opening the pictures.

It was a very easy process.
