Still gettting messed up pictures over the net

Hi there,

When I send a picture file as an atachment the picture gets garbled over the net. Sometimes it is completely messed up - sometimes it is just bad line tearing. This is using NTL broadband.

Have tried jpeg , bmp and other formats with similar results.

Have firewall and AGV for viruses, and have tried changing the cable to the Broadband. Have also tried a different HD without any difference.

anyone got any ideas please?

Are you sure it's a problem at your end? Have you tried sending to yourself?

Have tried sending to myself - same problem.

Just tried doing it now, with the PC cold (just turned on) and had same effect.

this prob has only happened since Christmas.

Can we take it that you are using the same ISP as before? Are you using the same email facility? Have you changed anything?

Do you have a web based email account (Hotmail, Yahoomail, Operamail, many others) that you could test this out on?

If not, can I suggest you get one or more. These accounts are free and may get you over your immediate difficulties but, obviously not cure them.

Hi there,

Have tried Yahoo, Hotmail, and sending also sending pix direct to ebay. Same probs.

Am using same ISP - NTL Broadband.

Hello again,

Is it worth risking turning off your firewall and AVG and sending to yourself again, just for the sake of elimination.

You've done a virus check btw?

I think this is a new problem to the forum and as you say -- baffling.

Will try it and see how it goes.

Where are these images coming from?

Digital Camera, scanned images, website etc...

What program are you using to view the images (photoshop etc) also do you edit them, change brightness etc?

What image viewer is the person you send the images to using?

If the images are not big say under 1.4 MB, copy and paste one image or several to a floppy disc and (if you can that is) pop the floppy disc into another computer and open them. Then i would ask are the images ok or are they messed up, as you say?

The images are from my Fuji 6800 digital camera.

Can move them about on the PC, onto CD etc, and they are OK.

Only seems to happen when I send them on the net.
