Photos get messed up when sent

Hi there,

Since Christmas, I have found that when I try to send photos (or picture files) on the net, they get messed up. (I always thought that this was impossible as there is built in error correction?)

Sometimes completely unusable, sometimes just with picture line tearing a lot. Have tried uploading photos to Ebay, and atatching to my Yahoo emails with similar results.

Am using NTL Broadband, AGV , and Outpost.

Have not detected any viruses or anything.

Have tried on a PC using Win ME and with Win 98.

Anyone got any ideas?

What format/file type are the pictures?

Hi - images are jpeg. Never used to have any probs.

If you have tried different PC's to send your pics it would seem to be a problem with your cable connection.

Are you using the same cable for both PCs to connect to the wall socket? If so, try a new/different one. A small break in the digital stream will lose data from the picture and shift everything along a few pixels at a time.
