yes, with the web images only option checked the pictures do upload correctly in IE, they even are styled correctly, resized etc. correctly. Not in FF or safari, i get an error code that the file is not an image.
sorry if i wasnt too clear, i think it is the browsers as well, and yes you are right about the exif. I have tried viewing the pictures to see the EXIF format and i can never actually see that format, i just know its what the cameras use to 'encode' as i saw it in the manual and online.
Anytime i even view the contents of the camera on my computer they come up as JPG. even if i right click and view properties, it says JPG. its almost like windows interperates it as a JPG as well (must be a microsoft thing huh??)
I hope there is some way we can get this to work, as this is a major format used and 2 major browsers interperet them as "foreign"
thanks for your research in this issue Eric, it is appreciated.
