    I tried that once with my Canon D60. It never reconized the format. I guess it can't read simple JPEG's or adds some wierd thing to the files. I wanted to display pictures on a TV. (computer->memory card->Digital camera->TV output)

    that sucks.

    all i want to do is put photos i took with the camera BACK on the camera.

    i seem to remember doing this with Quicktakes years ago

    tried this with my sony cybershot.

    the camera's memory stick is shown in the finder, placed some .jpgs into it; disconnected the camera - FAILURE!

    the camera didn't recognized the re-written files.

    obviously, the camera has its own file-system (you can see some strange named "extra" file besides the .jpgs...).

    maybe some wise and clever guy can programm such a file-maker ;-)

    i'm sure, you need this for every camera brand ;-(

    No need for software other than Resedit..

    The following proceedure works for me.

    ( I have a nikon coolpix 700 using standard compact flash cards..)


    Do not use original images. Make a duplicate set to practice on.

    Open each image in Resedit..

    Resedit will state that your digital images do not have a " Resource Fork ".

    It will ask if you want to add one.

    Click yes.

    Then it will open a resource window...Ignore it and just go to the resedit menu bar..click on " get info about image...abc etc " it will open up as a panel.

    Check that the " creator " is "ogle". Check also that INIT is ticked.

    If " use custom Icon " is ticked..click it off.

    When you close Resedit it will ask if you want to save the changes ?

    Click yes.

    With my Nikon, the images have code names allocated eg " DSCN0012.JPG " or " DSCN0015.JPG"

    Ensure you give them such names...in caps

    My card reader displays two folders..one inside the other..I open the inner most one called "100NIKON" & copy the images into it.

    I have tried this with images both in their " raw Quicktime state" and as thumbed jpg miniatures opened with Explorer and dragged to the desktop..

    In both the raw & thumbed modes,both image files opened up beautifully in my Nikon..

    With any luck, this method should work for other makes.

    I should point out I haven't had any luck with internet images...as the resource fork created using resedit seems to be much bigger than for images made in camera..

    I will research that aspect further....

    I can't say...Tonton

    Maybe someone else who has put their image through photoshop etc might be able to answer your question...

    In the meantime, i will try a few other approaches..but the process outlined is ( in my opinion ) easy to carry out..

    You might want to write an applet to batch process..but I'm happy to check my results one by one.

    PS : I have noted that unclicking the " use custom icon " box returns any thumbsized images ( processed through explorer ) back into raw quicktime jpegs....
