    Mr Pappy,

    Maybe you know this already.
    Mac files typically don't have file extensions which windows needs.
    add .jpg to your jpegs and .tif to your tifs and hopefully that will solve
    it.

    Hello Mr Pappy,

    I noticed that sometimes Jpegs or Tif's saved from the mac wont show up in the
    pc ver of FH when opened also.
    Sometimes FH on the PC will say not a valid format ect ect. Just open and
    resave them in Photoshop on the PC if adding the file extension doesn't work.

    You can also try to relink your files. FH on the Pc might be confused where
    the source files are located since you came from another platform.

    just some ideas to help you out.
