Jeff,

Is it possible that some files can't be seen because of their format? I use both Graphic Convertor and Photoshop for my photo work, and there are significant differences in how the icons behave between the two programs, and how they display when the photos are jpg, JPEG, tif or tiff.

Even JPEG photos now come in several versions on Photoshop, which might make a difference to Yahoo.

Do you "wash" contributed photos to some standard (for example Photoshop jpg) when you approve them for posting, or do you simply accept the submitted formatting? What format does Yahoo recommend?

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff

Folks,

�������������� A quick check at 9:25AM PST on Thursday shows that I cannot access the STMFC Files area either.� I note that some other groups (e.g. Shake-N-Take) show the same problem, whereas others (e.g. PassengerCarList) are fine.

Mike and I will discuss the best course of action.� Yes, we are aware that some other groups have moved to Groups.io; we are carefully examining the pro�s and con�s.

The STMFC /FILES and /ATTACHMENTS folder are not accessible.

Clearly, not a universal problem - I can access both folders on the BBFCL group.

I highly recommend moving to groups.io before it's too late.

Yep.� Photos are visible, Files not for me, as well.

No problem viewing photos, but what happened to the Files area? There's nothing there. Several of the groups I subscribe to have the same problem, but not all. The Resin Freight Car and Passenger Car list Files areas are still viewable.
