    Hi there.

    Probably a bit of a silly question but i haven't been able to find the answer by searching. I have an image file saved as a tif file on my work PC. Unable to open it at home, preview doesn't seem to recognise the file.

    Am I being stupid?

    Thanks

    It could be corrupt. Have you ever been able to open it?

    Edit: I'm pretty sure my .tiff files have two f's in the extension, not one. S'worth a try changing it I suppose :eek:

    I suppose it could have been corrupted being sent from work to home. If you are running Leopard, can you open it using Quick Look? (Select the file in Finder and tap the space bar.)
