    I was using namechanger tonight and didnt realize the program had been updated and messed up the image files I was trying to "name change". It turned a bunch of image files into unix executable files, and I dont know how to change them back. Any tips? Heres a screenshot of what I did

    there used to be an option to "hide the extension" and now its buried in the menu and I forgot to change it.

    You just need to add the file extension back to the files so that they're properly identified to OS X.

    I changed it back to .jpg and it calls it an image file, but it's not openable as an image.

    What app are you trying to use to open the files?
