    I received a .gif file as an attachment in an email and I can't see it. I tried open it with Photoshop, but I didn't have any luck either. Any ideas?

    Thank you all. ;) ;)

    Don't know what software you have installed but standard windows internet explorer will open .gifs. Windows ME and XP have image preview which will open them too.

    Thank you very much.

    I have Windows ME and IE 5.5.
    I'm starting to believe, however, that there is a problem with the file itself, because as you say, I've received others before and they open with no problems.

    I'll try what it is recommended in the forum link that you sent.

    Thanks again!
