Subject Re: [users@httpd] TIF image files
Date Wed, 09 May 2007 00:26:31 GMT
The Apple Quicktime plug-in will display TIFF files, but it's no 
guarantee that every visitor will have even that (some of us despise 
Quicktime and Apple's Jewish-mother nagging about it ;-).  GIF, JPEG, 
and PNG are your viable choices.  If you need a decent image manager and 
converter, I might suggest Cerious Software's ThumbsPlus.
