Pics on TPF

When Daniel posts a picture (I suspect from his iPhone using Tapatalk) all I can see on my Macbook Air is this...

What do others see?

No.

Please try posting in a format other than .tiff

I see that. Will resave as jpeg (images from Grab, on a Mac, are tiff by default for some odd reason).

How's that?

NB this was originally done on a laptop, not via Tapatalk... but perhaps its the fact that it was a tiff, as you say..

(NBB: the missing apostrophe above is a joke.)

That worked. It must be something to do with TIFFs on my device.

Suggestions welcome.

Note: When I purchased my Mac a few years ago my Security (and Health) Consultant helped me make it secure by suggesting I download and install a multitude of plugins. I suspect that even the NSA can't get in and perhaps one of these is causing TIFFs to be invisible.
