View Full Version : Saving a .TIFF to be downloaded online

07-13-2010, 08:44 PM
I have a .TIFF that was created in Photoshop from an ESP. I upload it to my site to a link. When i click on the link it opens a new page and the "Quicktime" symbol appears then the image does.

That's not at all what i want. I want it to be a normal download. So when a user clicks the link the it saves to their computer, just link any other file.

What am i doing wrong, is there a certain way to save it? Thanks for any help.

I think it has something to do with the MIME type it is served with. From what I seem to remember you can set the file handling/MIME type in an .htaccess file. Something like application/octet-stream comes to mind but I don’t know if that’s it. A little bit of searching the internet will probably give you some idea.
