eFax and graphics formats
Authored by: tomem on Sep 02, '02 10:10:19AM

This is great news, and we can hope that the pdf files are more robust than they have been (have your's been invisible to some recipients?).

It may be no coincidence that eFax has turned off the .tif option and made preferences inaccessible to free users. I noticed when I got a fax from eFax in .efx format. So I had to download their viewer, and the fax turned out to be spam from eFax! Nothing is really free, is it.

The X.1 version of Preview also supported saving to multiple file formats.

eFax and graphics formats
Authored by: cclauset on Sep 02, '02 10:52:16AM
If you are still receiving .efx files, you can email techsupport and request to have them switch your account to .jfx files. Also, while Preview is great for viewing .jfx files, beware of saving any changes to your efax files. Upon saving, the file will re-associate itself with GraphicConverter and will no longer be openable within Preview. Also, there is a simple mail rule that you can create to get rid of the eFax junk mail that is thrust upon efax free customers. Junk faxes always come From: "news@mx2.efax.com", whereas 'real' faxes always come From: "message@mail.efax.com".

Preview's new abilities
Authored by: atmasphere on Sep 03, '02 12:39:55PM

If you drop an animated GIF onto Preview, each frame opens as a separate image in the drawer.

This is a very cool feature, but had me thinking I could export or save as into one single file to send to someone else. Has enyone figured this out??
